When it rains, it pours!
In doing the record keeping for the garden trial, I was to count the number of pods per plant. The winner- 126! Of course, I was outdone by my parents who had one plant with 165. sigh. But I haven't picked all of them yet. Maybe I can still beat them with varieties 32 or 42- they aren't quite ready yet....
Holy cow! One plant had that many pods on it?? I figured if you had 30 you were doing good! so much for my knowledge of pod plants!! lol ...debbieReplyDelete
ok, what the heck variety are you growing a Frankenstein? LOL, mine average about 9-10 pods and that's for all 3 varieties!ReplyDelete
Debbie- I was a bit surprised too.ReplyDelete
Erin- these are the garden trial, experimental varieties. Of course, this may also be an indication of why Iowa is a huge soybean producer and Virginia isn't.
Actually, most plants had around 60 or 70 pods. The lowest count was around 40 and that was one that the deer had been browsing. GRRR.
I don't have room to freeze many in the pods so I was shelling them last night. Ugh. I only got through about half before my fingers were sore. They're more work than tomatoes!
Wow, what a harvest! I've been reading back through the archives I've missed and you guys have been SO busy this summer, whew! Thanks for the anniversary wishes :) I'm eating a homemade roll with butter, munching away while my sweetheart quietly snores in the other room. He has an early day tomorrow, so we'll have to call dibs on some time together (well, time while Conscious, ha) for the weekend. SO glad you are doing well! :)ReplyDelete
HI there, what variety are you growing? I tried edamame in my climate this year but it was too wet and cold, umusual for the Pacific NW. My kid loooves edamame and was hoping to grow a lot.ReplyDelete
Also, I linked to your post on my website.Hope you don't mind! www.amyoddities.blogspot.comReplyDelete
Hi Amy, Thanks for stopping in. I left a comment on your blog- I don't mind the link. I just wish I had better information on what variety these were other than Gardensoy.ReplyDelete
