Harvest: Edamame

Today it was time to pull the edamame out of the ground!  We harvested quite a lot of bushes!20121010-145015.jpgEmpty harvest basket for size comparison.  Talina and I sat on the front lawn and pulled bean pods off the bushes for a while.  When we were done we had quite a few beans!
