Soybeans

25 Sep

I have twenty-four acres of soybeans planted.

It’s been quite the challenging year.  We started with so much rain that they were planted quite late.

Honestly, they only had about an inch of rain in the two months after they were planted.

They had hardly any pods on them, and I was really worried as to whether or not I’d have any harvest.

With the rain in the last week, we’re getting more pods!

The plants are just starting to turn, so they should finish maturing as long as we don’t get an early freeze.

As much as I want the allergens to go away, I guess I’m hoping for no freezes for a while yet.
