Planting / harvesting notes

Direct sow ½"-1" deep a couple weeks after the last frost, when the soil has warmed. Space seeds 12" apart in rows 12" apart. Plants grow 30-36" in height. Harvest the entire crop at once at the earliest hint of yellow in the pods. Boil, steam, or pan sear the pods and freeze any extra, either shelled or left in the pod to shell after defrosted.

Seed keeping notes

To harvest soy or edamame seeds, wait an extra month for the plants to dry and drop their leaves. Harvest the whole dry plant and hang it to dry further. The pods should fall off when the plant is shaken. Shell the seeds and store in a dry place until planting.
