Farm Report: September Week 3

If you want to feel like a fancy pants, just grow soybeans. You can call them edamame and put sea salt on them, see? That’s fancy. And your kids will eat them and be fancy too. As long as you can convince them that edamame is not just a fancy word for Lima bean. Lima beans are not fancy.
Overall, I’m happy with our soybean crop. Although from a square foot gardening perspective, these guys are space hogs. They get planted early spring and sit there all fat and smug all summer. “Don’t bother me, I’m making edamame.”
When they finally start producing, they do bring their A Game so they get to stay on the roster.
