Harvesting Edamame—Except for the Seed Plants

When the edamame plant leaves turn yellow, it’s time to harvest the crop.

Gardeners harvested all but the sixteen plants closest to edamame perfection. Those will continue to mature. We’ll harvest them later and save and dry the seeds to plant next year’s crop.

Gardeners pinched and snipped edamame pods off the vines.

The edamame was divided into seventeen small shares, one for each gardener household.
