Hey tater, nice looking peanuts! Call me when they're ready to boil.

Pretty impressive picture! Makes me jealous.

I've toyed with small amounts of peanuts over the years and this is the first time I've gotten more than one or two (plants, not acres!) to even come up. I've got about 75' of row that looks a little like your plants, just sparser. Oh well, it is all just for fun for me!

thanks for sharing,
tom

Tom! maybe you already know but just in case you dom't, peanuts grow best in sandy soil, and if you keep the raw peanuts in the freezer through the winter until planting time in the spring they sprout and grow better.

tenacious, sounds like u have raised peanuts,
they dont do it the way we used to. was watching them harvest last year. they just hook the machine to their airconditioned tractor with stereo, and a cooler fer cold drinks and food,
and work the whole dang field without geting out of tractor,
back in olden days we plowed them up with a team of mules, then turned the plants bottom up to dry,
then went back with horses and wagon. loaded peanut vines on wagon, hauled to thrasher,
the youngens job was to sack and tie bags. it was a real dirty job, but i wudent change it fer nuthin.
see ye later
tater.

Yep! only remember one year of peanuts. My job was sewing up the sacks after threshing them. Was lots of fun.
