This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

soybeans

soybeans soybean bush
I don't know why more people don't grow soybeans. It looks like I have a real nice crop coming soon. They were easy to grow and there are many soybeans on each plant. The season seems only a couple weeks longer than green beans. Maybe its not such a popular vegetable to eat, but I love edamame with salt as an appetizer. I'm curious to see if homegrown tastes better than the frozen soybeans I usually eat.

Fabaceae

Its Early Hakucho from The Cook's Garden. The description reads:

Best Variety for Fresh Eating!
Matures even in short season areas.

Early to mature and with a densely concentrated pod set, these dwarf one-foot plants are heavy producers for the kitchen garden.

Thanks, maybe I will try that variety out. I grew Envy soybeans for the first time this year, but it doesn't look like there are going to be that many pods per plant.
