Wednesday we went for a short walk into a neighbors soybean field.
bonnies pond and soy field_005It was so nice to get out and enjoy the day…we have had such a difficult and stressful few weeks.
Bonnie, who owns this land, is in her 80s
She still has her land plowed and planted.
This year she has soybeans  Soybeans are planted to enrich the soil.
Next year she will have tobacco planted.

The soybeans were smaller than the edamame we are used to eating.

They were chewy and tasty. We don’t think these are harvested at all and will find out if we can pick a few to cook.

Bonnie also has a small pond on her property.
