Peanuts

I have to be honest. I have another love. The outside. This world includes growing things in my garden. I was getting bored with the traditional things I always planted: zucchini, tomatoes, cucumbers, sunflowers, etc. This year I wanted different, exciting. PEANUTS! Yes, the real Mr. Planters, growing in my backyard.

I planted the nuts, inside the shell, in peat pots. In a few days they were ready for garden. A couple weeks later the shell started to pop out of the ground. The shell opened and tiny leaves began popping out! Now, as of July 20, I have huge, vining peanut plants. In couple months, I’ll be able to dig up hundreds of pods-and make my own peanut butter!! Oh. yeah.:)
