This is my other experiment on this season, growing edamame.
As you know that most of my plant are grown on the containers.
I planted edamame seeds by direct sowing on the six pots.
I sowed three seeds each pot.
The seed germinated in three days.
The flowers were bearing at the fourth week after sowing, then the fruit lets were formed.
The pods growth look so slow.
But I can find so much pods each plant, about 20 - 25 pods.
I don't know, their growth are already optimum yet or not.
As a legume, this plant can fix the nitrogen from the air and soil, so I only use a few compost on the media.
I'm not sure that's a right way.
But the growth is fairy well.
I think the volcanic ash that fell at February 13 have a contribution to add more natural fertilizer.
The ash stuck on the surface of leaves.
The volcanic ash contains sulphuric material, a micronutrient for plant growth.
I only give a minimum maintenance, just watering.
No bugs or diseases.
Maybe next two weeks I will harvest this plot.
If you have experience on growing edamame, please share.
