The Beans Are Making Progress!

We've been busy! We planted some of the beans later than we would have liked this year (due to a wet spring and some slow shipping of bean seed). But we are happy to report that the beans are coming along nicely for the most part.

The Yellow Indian Woman beans just after they popped out of the ground...

 And Black Valentine in blossom...

These are Jacob's Cattle with blossoms and small beans forming.

We could use a bit of rain right now. The beans are doing well, but one of the fields is a heavier soil (clay) and is baked to nearly concrete stage with the heat and dry weather.

The weeds are somewhat under control, thanks to starting with clean fields, cultivating regularly, and LOTS of hard hand-weeding by the family. We are hopeful...
