this field almost fooled me last week..not so today ..i knew what to look for and what i found was a no til bean field..from a distance it looks fallow...take a few steps in ( being careful not to step on bean plants...we are not intent on destruction ) and have a closer look and there are rows of beans between last season's corn stalks and the native plants burgeoning out there...the presence of those natives tells me that, unlike the field behind the big box stores, no herbicide has been here...the beans are well camouflaged...almost will be interesting to see if they grow taller where the natives are thickest ( towards the edges of the field...the middle is relatively open ) or if they remain somewhat stunted...we will see...there will be more trips to the supermarket.
