It's been about a week and a half since I reported on the problem with damping off in the patch of Monachelle di Trevio beans in my garden. Well, I'm happy to say that the 6 survivors have stayed with us and are actually growing. I had sowed my remaining dozen seeds in paper pots at that time and got 100% germination, although there is one week seedling. Those babies went into the spots previously occupied by the first bunch of beans.
I had mixed up a sprayer full of Actinovate to treat a fungal problem elsewhere in the garden so the new bean seedlings got a squirt of that and I may cover my bases and give them a spray of 70% Neem as well.
I've got my fingers crossed that the next report about these beans is as positive as this one.
