ABC Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday November 14 2012

R is for Reaping the Harvest
In Mississippi soy beans are usually planted in May and harvested in September and October.

Here the soy beans are left in the field until the plants die and the bean pods are dry.
If harvested while the beans are still green, they are marketed as Edamame Beans

Last year Mississippi farmers produced 72,980,000 bushels of soy beans.
Visit the Mississippi Department of Agriculture website for more information

Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!

  4. I love those big old farm combines.

  5. nice shots..I don't have any idea on how soybean plant look like and it's great you have them captured...I will have these pics seen by my son so he will have an idea on how the products from soybeans that he loves looks like initially.

    In the Philippines, mornings of kids are not complete without "Taho", a soybean curd smothered with caramel or sugar syrup and taro pearls.
