PInto beans ... In Dallas ? not so good!

Dallas, Texas

I dug the ground enough to provide lots of soft mulchy soil for the pintos I threw down and they popped up fast but then came the summer blast. It was not possible to even keep them green much less upright after a few weeks time and they simply faded away and died. Bad for the pintos to try and grow them directly in the sun in Dallas. I think I may try to plant them again in fall. Maybe by then when temperatures go down in the 80's or so I can get some to grow before it gets too cool for them to grow. I have no clue really what's best for pintos.

I figure they grow better up north a bit. Maybe better in Iowa or Idaho. I just can't say.

I have no clue either. Next summer we will plant some tomatoes.

You live in a cooler area so they will do better in your neck of the woods. Hopefully you will buy organics.
