My husband is now known as Matt of the beanstalk. Or at least Matt of the magic beans. We have a little ways to go until we have actual stalks.
Our fields have been planted with soybeans this year. After tilling the soil, our farmer spread these little turquoise seeds.
After a night of rain, they shifted from round beads to a shape more resembling beans.
Then the beans split.
And now, a week after planting, a few sprouts have begun coming up through the soil.
Fee-fie-foe-fum. Fields of beans, here we come.
Has anyone out there grown soybeans? Or seen them in your area? Are you planting any new plants in your garden this year?
