Edamame Blooms

My edamame (soybeans) are doing really well so far. After growing 6 or so plants last year as an experiment, I vowed to grow a good supply this year.

The beans in the background here were planted about 3 weeks ago. Those in the foreground were sowed about 6 weeks ago. There are 4 different varieties shown here, plus another 2 varieties in another bed, planted about a week ago. I'm anxious to see the differences between them all.

The only obvious difference so far is in bloom color. Here we have a creamy white and tan bloom.

And this variety has a light purple/pink
