Story and Photos: Tammy Hamers (Canberra Organic - Spring 2019)

In a possible first for gardeners in the local area, I recently managed to raise edamame (soybeans) to their full maturity at my plot in the Holder community garden. I like to attempt things that are challenging and not known to be easily done, which is why I chose to try and grow edamame.

The seeds for this crop were purchased from Green Harvest Organic Suppliers, although on a previous occasion edamame germinated in my green manure/compost mix that was picked up from Bellchambers!

Edamame must be cooked before eating and I like to enjoy them as part of a soup or a salad. Why not have a go at growing them yourself!
