Harvest Time

The dead foliage in my yard told me it was time to get dirty. Peanuts are the weirdos of the legume family, after pollination the flower sends a peg down into the soil where the embryo grows into a peanut.

After a bit of rooting around I had filled a three gallon bucket with peanuts. I’ll toss out a handful every day for the birds. Knowing them, the Blue Jays will probably plant them somewhere. I guess I’ll find out next spring if they found another good spot in my yard!
