AdFarm Pinto Beans: Vining and Blossoms

The pinto beans on the AdFarm acres have been putting the refreshment from Friday's rain to use.
Above:  The vining beans seemed to grow as I watched.

The plants are heavy with blossoms and buds.
Above:  Additional moisture will be required to provide energy and turn these blossoms into beans.
Above:  So far things are working and the bean pods have begun to form.
Above:  The space between rows has nearly filled in as the plants continue to mature.
Above:  For those who attended the farm tour, this is the perspective of the AdFarm field from the approach by the lone tree. 
Above:  Also from the approach, the canola field next to the pinto beans is now swathed.
Above:  Our neighbor's dog kept me company as I inspected the fields.
