I think back to how quickly years
passed during cherished momentous times.
Plenty of research...to then carefully nurture
plant seedlings to fully fledged vegetables.
I also wasn't particularly fond of getting stuck

cornucopia of fresh and colourful vegetables.
edamame (a.k.a. soybean) right here on a farm found in Southern Manitoba, Canada.
The word Edamame means "Beans on Branches"
Therefore, this bean can easily be consumed throughout the year.
The Edamame bean is considered as one of the 'Superfoods' .
It is high in fibre and extremely high in proteins.
It contains significant Vitamins A and C as well as calcium and iron.
It is also a great source of isoflavones which is often
referenced to protect against cancer and osteoporosis.
The estrogenic effects of the edamame bean is believed
to reduce symptoms associated with women’s
body discomforts as they enter the later stages of their lives.
