Edamame basking in the sun
As I was picking edamame (soybean) last evening my mind was wondering, as it always does. It seemed I was doing a great job at picking, but then I realized that the true secret to being a great picker, (at least in your own mind) is DON'T LOOK BACK!
I can't believe how many beans I missed and how obvious they were on the way back up the row. I mean RIGHT UP FRONT and I missed a whole plant! Guess my mind was REALLY far away.
We had the same experience last week picking blueberries. We picked the bush CLEAN, but when we were walking away, I made the mistake of turning around. DARN! They had grown some more and already ripened them in a matter of minutes!
