Ford, I'm a bit confused. Do you mean you earthed up 3 rows of potatoes and left 3 rows untouched? When you say 'died off' do you mean dried up or perhaps blight? As for the peas...? no idea, unless with the very hot weather we've had they've lacked sufficient watering...thinking about it, is that what has effected the potatoes? Both need copious amounts of water to my knowledge. Sorry I can't be of more help. I'm sure other members of Goy will have more knowledge. Could you perhaps post some pictures and put your question to the 'Questions' section....Good luck.
