Well now that we have finished corn....so it is now time to move on to beans. The beans are dry, but the the stalks aren't so it's still slow going....just like the this past growing season.
It all starts when we put the seed in the ground.....then well our part is done for the most part, we sit back and do a lot of praying cause if they make or not is not up us but it is up to God. Even though the beans were very slow growing it's still lookin' like we will have a pretty good year.
Here's a few pics of the stages the beans go through from the beginning to the end...
I love the way the dried out pods look when they are ready to harvest.
It took a little longer than usually to get to this point but we are glad to be getting them out!
So as I have said many times before....things never happen like you want them to. Since the stalks are still a little tough we have had to make frequent stops to unplug the combine...
The nice thing about being behind the lens....I don't have to help with the problems.....ok that only happens for a bit then after I have taken the pics I have to get back to work....yuck ;)
After getting all the junk pulled out and the combine freed up Pop gets back on and gets going again....they gotta keep the combines moving, cause we want to get as much as we can done, cause there was a chance of rain on Monday night.....
....and we would like to get finished before Thanksgiving!!
Even though we had a few hiccup's through out the day we did get the field finished....so we will be on to the next field as soon as we can!
