Experiment 8 - Lentils and Green Lentils (MTG 6.1)

If you missed the last post, I’m doing edition 6 of “Meet the Garden” on a per-plant basis. First up, the lentils!

The plants appear to be done flowering and are absolutely covered in lentil pods. Many of the lentils within the pods look like they are at or nearing full size, too!

The above photo should provide some amount of context. 

The plants are looking as if they may be nearing the end of their season. Does anybody happen to know a good way of drying fresh lentils and/or get them out of their shells?
