Over the winter, I connected with a few writers who specialize in the agricultural sector. Most of them have a background in farming. From them, I learned that when people ask me what kind of farm we have, the correct answer (so that I don’t sound like a complete city slicker) is “cash crop.”
This year’s cash crop is soybeans.
However, I should be clear that this is not our cash, nor our crop. We’re still too citified to farm our own fields. I’d have no idea where to even start. And we definitely don’t have the equipment.
Everything that’s gone into the fields and all of the plants that are currently in the fields belong to our farmer.
The soybeans are now knee high to a puppy dog.
There are still a few tiny blossoms here and there. We should be seeing bean pods soon.
I’m too much of a city slicker to know whether things are looking good. From afar, they’re looking very green.
Farmers with much more knowledge than me are sharing their crops at #plant15. I encourage you to check it out to see the ups (and downs) of the growing season so far.
