we've had some rain! Five inches in the last 48 hours and it could
rain some more today. We certainly needed that rain. Our field
looks pretty good.
The plants in our row are in good shape. You can see from the color of
the soil that it is wet. Also, you might see some lower leaves
tuning yellow. We will be seeing more of that in the next few weeks.
If you want to take a close-up look at some of the pods click
our first plant and you can see how the pods are distributed
throughout the plant. The braches are contributing quite a few pods.
our second plant and it still looks good. There's one branch to the
right that is almost as tall as the main stem (which is in the
middle) and it is loaded with pods. I wish all the plants in our
field looked like this one...we would have a great soybean harvest.
Question for the Day: Do all soybean pods have three seeds inside
them? Or do some pods have a different number of seeds in them? What
do you think? I'm waiting for the answer!! Well, if you said that
all pods have three seeds in them, well, that's not quite right!
Most pods have three seeds inside, but some pods have only two beans
inside and some have four seeds inside. Pretty neat, huh?
