Default Edamame!

I have an edamame pod on my plant! This is my first year gardening and my daughters love edamame so I planted some. Glad to see they are going to produce

Hope you have only two daughters! (One seed each!)

Oh, I see more flowers in there coming along! What variety are you growing?

Better produce more than just this! There are definitely more flowers ready to bud. Doesn't mature until early August.

Something ate both my edamame plant tonight. Pods, leaves and most of the stem, I'm so ★★★★ed. Even ate 1/3 of my carrot tops that were cruising along nicely. Finally installing a smaller bird netting style fence over the top and attached to the current fence around the outside.

So bummed, all that hard work just to feed a chipmunk/squirrel/raccoon.

I'm suffering from a grasshopper invasion. They go after my edamame plants more than anything else in my garden.

Soybeans are like candy to most herbivores; I had little need for fences until I began growing edamame. Rabbits would pass everything else without damage, and mow the soybeans to the ground. Deer & ground hogs would eat the soybeans first, then nibble on something else. Fencing is pretty much a necessity when you grow soybeans, unless your intent is just to feed the wild life.

Exciting times.

Knowing that the wildlife love it so much, I wonder if I planted some of that as a sacraficial crop if the stinking rabbits would leave the rest of my garden alone.

PA_Wolf, sorry to hear about your plant.

Isabelle, I suspect you would just have more rabbits!
