Very nice. I remember when I was a kid, looking into the grain-hopper wagon, noticing that in addition to the grain there was about 5-10% insects (mostly stink bugs, grasshoppers, and lady beetles). Were there many incidentally-harvested insects in the soybeans?
Nope, the beans were as clean as a whistle as we harvested them.
The complete lack of insects in the beans is a little disturbing to me, though I’m sure growers and buyers appreciate it.
The complete lack of insects in the beans is due to my individually picking each of the 2,886 plants by hand before they were fed them into the hand thresher. C’mon, I’m trying to do some science here 😉
I actually prefer the last photo not show grasshopper legs sticking out here and there.
