Pinto Beans Maturing

 This may be the only flowers left in our pinto bean fields, so I had to preserve the memory of flowers in our fields.
Summer is racing on. Flowers are fewer. 
There are pinto beans in the field. 
 It's dry out here. It is evident by the spike appearance of the leaves.
But the crop has not dried out. That is partially due to the weed control evident in the field. 
There are dry places in the field. 
However, the places that I noticed contained mature looking beans. 
 The weather conditions will affect yield, but we have a crop of beans out here.
 Another shot of rain will help the pintos finish filling.
We still have reason to hope for a crop in the pinto bean fields of GriggsDakota.

  1. Great photos! We were just out on our bean field yesterday taking pictures. The lack of rain and extreme heat earlier this year has affected the yield, I'm sure--we saw lots of dropped blossoms during the heat periods. But we have reason to hope for a crop, too...
