  • When I was little we lived on a small 20 acre farm and had ancient equipment. When my dad would go out to pick corn he would hoist me into the wagon and I would sit back there removing husks and tassels. Naturally it was almost always in November to boot. I vote bean field!

  • Ugh, been there done both and both jobs suck! LOL I think I'd have to choose detassling though, less bending over!

  • I hated doing both as a teenager. I'd rather detassel corn though than walk beans. Gosh that brings back memories!
