Pictures From Cannon Falls, MN

Here's the pictures I promised.  It took me a while to make these work.


These are from East of Cannon Falls on Hwy 19, an area that a few months ago I said was really nice.

These are narrow row beans - 7 inch I think.  This is looking North on Hwy 19 several miles West of Vasa.

A closer look at the same field.

And a close up of the plants.  I was impressed to see this many beans on a plant, 3 to 4 pods on a nod, with mostly 3 bean pods.  In 7 inch rows.  The beans weren't too small either, although moisture today was probably 18 - 20%.  Dried down, I suspect the beans will be 2500/lb or so.  My guess is these fields will not disappoint the farmer - I'm guessing 50+ fairly easily.

I walked in the field off of a driveway, and picked an area that looked representative.  Again - nice.  Probably not 200, but 150+.


That's it for tonight.  Glad to see I finally got these to go.
