Beans and Bindweed!


Beans 1Last night I had hoped to finish harvest. However at 10.30 the combine rolled back to the farm, mission unaccomplished. There was a patch of beans that was covered in bindweed. This is a weed from the past, it used to dramatically slow down the combine’s progress through wheat until a chemical was found to consign it to the history books. It is now only occasionally found in beans, and we found it last night…

Good for the heart!
Bindweed stops you,
Before you start!
If the sun shines,
Brightly today,
Then we’ll bean finished!
Hip! Hip! Hooray!
