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.
