Soybean Fields

All of our soybean fields are dying down for the year. Dad planted three different varieties in three separate fields that are visible from the house. The photo above is of the soybeans directly behind our house.You can see that they are mostly golden yellow, with spots of green.

This is the next field to the west. It is still mostly green, but it has a generous amount of yellow in it, too.

And this is the next field farther west. It’s actually the neighbor’s field, but we rent it from them. It is almost solid green still. In fact, I can’t really see any yellow in it at all! It has quite a way to go before being ready to harvest. I guess there is a little lesson to be learned from the soybean fields.

It’s so cool to see all the different variations of soy beans. During the spring and summer, there isn’t an obvious difference; then autumn comes and suddenly, you can tell which field has the shortest maturity and will be ready to be harvestedĀ first.

Thank you for visiting A Homespun Country Life!
