Our field continues to mature as evidenced by the
leaf yellowing. You will be surprised how fast the leaves yellow and
drop over the next two weeks or so. Have you started to think about
when we will harvest this field? I wanted to take pictures last
Friday, but it was raining to hard. It rained about 0.55 inches.
row is yellowing and dropping leaves a little faster than the rest
of the field. The reason is we are handling the plants more

first plant's leaves are turning yellow and a few have dropped to
the ground. But there are quite a few leaves that are still green.
second plant is maturing like our first plant. As I mentioned

pods have started to change colors. They will continue to lose their
green color and turn a tannish-brown color. Notice how green the
plants are in the background.
