    Im growing alaska peas and the leaves started to get little white spots on them then they slowly spread and now the leaves are turning yellow and some have brown around the edges that look like its burnt. There are little tini tiny black bugs on them are they causing this? And how can i help them get better? Thanks for the help :) (oh and if you need better pictures just let me know)

    The squiggly parts at least would surely be some kind of leaf mining insect.

    Hello : I am new here ( hope this will work)?
    Maybe your peas need some rich nitrogen fertilizer to get them started.YOu may try it and see if it helps.Its too early for powdery mildew as yet.

    Legumes such as peas contain nodules on their roots which supply them with nitrogen.

    "Legumes such as peas contain nodules on their roots which supply them with nitrogen."
    Yes you are correct on this , but all legumes need inoculant.Inoculant should be added every few years.
    Rhizobacteria can process atmospheric nitrogen in the soil into a form that plants can use.

    Not the same as applying a "rich nitrogen fertilizer".

    anyDAZEcoo: just to let you know that I am trying to give you an idea of what may or not may help.It did a trick for me before I applied soil inoculant.

    Ron B: I am just trying to help out a fellow gardener here and nothing else.
    Since applying a nitrogen rich fertilizer did magic for my peas in the past I thought that I would share that possibility with another gardener.
    Perhaps I am in the wrong forum?? Or am I missing something.
    I have nothing more to say to you. Thank you.
