The weather forecasters predict a bit of rain overnight, something we've had mighty little of this summer.
We decided the time is right to start pulling beans. There is a section of the October bean field that is fully mature. Too much rain might sprout the beans.
We hand pulled them and threw the plants on a hay wagon with a tarp.
They really pull up well, and it's not hard work. But it does take a long time. And today it was hot and still.
These will dry on the wagon for a couple of days, and we'll feed them through the combine. Perhaps we'll have enough October beans to bring to the farmers' market this weekend!
