I know, I know. In the story the eggs are gold and the beans are magic. But in our case, it’s our beans that are turning gold.
This is our first time growing soybeans, so we’re learning as we go. It turns out that as the beans ripen, the plants turn yellow.
The pods are plump and fuzzy.
Inside, we have actual beans. Edamame anyone?
In other fields in the area, where the beans are a bit older, the plants have gone past gold and are all the way brown. I still have no idea how far away we are from harvest time. We’re continuing to learn about this farming thing.
Is it harvest time where you live? Do you like edamame?
