Beans in the backyard 2012, weeks 4 & 5

 May 27

 June 3

By the beginning of June we witnessed three fully developed trifoliolates and the fourth emerging.  My amateur analysis tells me this plant (and most of the field) is at the V3 stage, quickly approaching V4. There appears to be a small trifoliolate growing off the branch of one of the others, but we won't confuse that one with those on the main stem.  At this rate, I don't expect reproductive growth for another couple weeks, but we'll keep watching closely nonetheless.


  1. We've been eating our garden beans for a few weeks here, and I hope to plant some more soon. Looks like your neighbor's crop is doing quite well.


  2. Victoria, I envy you eating beans fresh out of the garden. I don't think I'll be so tempted by the soybeans out back though!

  3. Ahhh Kurt, you have such a knack for making even the most mundane happenings into gripping prose;-)
