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.

ripe soybeans

Looks like the soybeans are ready to eat! Just in time for my birthday. In a few days I'll harvest these hairy beans and check out what garden fresh edamame tastes like.

The variety is Early Haucho from The Cook's Garden that I planted on May 28.

Fabaceae

Ok, so I'm SUPER late on this post (I'm only a new addict of skippy's vegetable garden) but I noticed these nice pictures and posts on edamame. This is my first year growing soybeans and I'm looking for tips since you seem to have at least a few seasons under your belt. I'm growing Shironomai from Park. http://www.parkseed.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StoreCatalogDisplay?storeId=10101&catalogId=10101&langId=-1&mainPage=prod2working&ItemId=5513&PrevMainPage=textsearchresults&scChannel=Text%20Search&SearchText=soybean&OfferCode=V1H

These were an afterthough once I decided to scrap pole beans this year so I didn't start any seedlings indoors. I was just going to plant them outdoors in a few weeks. With your experience, what do you think? Can you even start soybeans indoors? The post reads "Soybeans: May 10 through June 20." Is that for a staggered planting/harvest? I chose the Shironomai for its "summer-long yields."
