Farmer Danny told He-Who-Mows that peanuts in the field behind our house were ready for boiling.
I dug 2 Mule truckloads with my little spading fork.
The green ribbon in front of trees in the distance is peanuts. Buffy helped by making commotion to scare away any possible snakes. It takes courage to step into a solid carpet of peanut vines where they lapped the middles between the rows. We saw deer tracks along field's edge.
I picked off a good part of them. He-Who-Mows finished mowing and helped.
He and Buffy will boil them tomorrow. There are probably 3 gallons of green peanuts.
Boiled green peanuts are not my favorite snack. I think you have to be born to boiled peanuts. I'll pick up dry peanuts the combine drops when they are picked and roast mine.
The difference between green peanuts and dry peanuts is like the difference between green and dry black eyed peas. Both are legumes and both are tasty. I prefer my peas green, my peanuts dry.
