Somebody on the other site mentioned wanting to see a pic of a peanut plant. I fed this morning and snapped a couple pics on our place.

Wetter than I thought I'd be. Need some sunshine and wind on them.

Might be fun to grow some in the garden, or at least try it just to watch. Where could I get a small handful of seeds?

I'm with you, would like to grow a few in garden, we have the sandy soil here. And it gets mighty hot here in the summer, we had 110 + temps this summer, peanuts might do fairly well here.

These are commercial nuts here. They'll go for oil or candy bars - I've heard. Y'all remind me next spring and I'll send you some better ones for your garden.

I think they would probably grow, but may not quite get to maturity. Might be the same way here in Iowa, but would still be fun to see what happens.

My Dad used to grow some in the garden, he would usually have about a bushel. we got pretty good at roasting them in the oven. Dad and Alice were always having contest to see how made the best peanut brittle. I am sure glad they didn't make me judge them, they were both good at it. I don't know where he got the seed.

Uncle put some in his garden this year. They looked good but he was afraid he planted them late in the season. I'll have to remember to ask him how they did next time I see him.

Just a warning, don't use "commercial" and "nuts" in the same sentence at a truckstop.
