Soybean Harvesting – Pt 2

So you saw part one, the actual cutting down of the soybean plants.  So how many soybeans did we get? How much edamame will I be eating? How stocked is our freezer right now?  Answers:  10.3 pounds in one harvest (not including a few days before of picking), alot, so stocked I have to beg the freezer door to close.

Soybeans – one of the surprises of the garden this year! We’ll definitely plant them every year now.  Great job beans!
