I planted zipper cream peas and pinto beans a couple weeks ago using a Covington one row planter, and it seemed to do a good job with the zipper creams. I was worried about the pintos, because it didn’t seem like it was dropping them consistently.
I ended up with basically none of the zippers germinating and only decent germination from the pintos.
I decided yesterday to hand plant the gaps in the pintos and finally finished the last row this morning. It just started raining, so hopefully they’ll germinate pretty quick.

I grew zipper creams once. They are ok but I went back to pinkeye purple hull.

Out of curiosity, do you soak those seeds before you plant? I tend to presoak any larger seeds/beans for faster germination. A little warm water, in go the seeds, plant within 24 hours. Has worked well for me.
