I started a number of vegis and flowers in peat pots and Park Seed
company starting mix this year. They did as well as I expected (mostly
successful, a few failures), but now I have a strange problem. I
transplanted half of my corn and bean seedlings a few weeks ago. Both
the ones I transplanted and the ones I have yet to transplant are SETTING
FRUIT! I can't believe my eyes! Tiny 8" bean plants with 2" beans on
them already...the corn is about as high as the beans, and the ears that
are developing take up almost the entire plant. The ears even have quite
a bit of silk coming out! I rather wish they would spend a little more
time getting big before they get to fruiting...
Does anyone have any experience with a problem like this? What could
have caused this strange phenomenon? It is not happening to any of the
other seedlings (tomato, lettuce, spinach, herbs, flowers, etc...).
Thanks for helping someone who is starting things from seed for the first
