Confirmed – it’s soybean

Two months ago, I wondered what were those plants planted beside the cross-country trail. Well, it’s confirmed, they are soybean. The other day while I was out on my run, I stopped, looked around, stretched out my hand and plucked a single soybean pod 😛

When it first became obvious that those plants were soybean, I had this thought of fresh green soybean (edamame) from the fields. But after waiting several weeks, the soybean pods were still rather small. This particular soybean pod is only half the size of edamame, I guess no fresh edamame then. These soybeans will probably end up becoming animal feed, like last year’s corn.
