Today at the farm we got to pick peanuts!! Honestly my idea of peanuts has always been from a can with Mr. Peanut on the front. I always thought peanuts came from a tree, sort of like almonds, but today I learned something new. Peanuts do not come from a tree, in fact, the come out of the ground attached to the roots of a plant. Thus giving them the name of "groundnut". It was interesting taking part in the harvest of peanuts. I learned that when the outer skin of the peanut is red that means it's ready to eat. We were able to harvest about ~2 lbs. of peanuts. All in all it was a very cool experience and I can say I learned a lot about the process of harvesting peanuts. Here is a picture of one of the other interns (Miranda) holding some of the wonderful peanuts we picked. As you can see it was quite the handful... Get it? I'm so clever! Anyways that's all I have on the wonderful world of peanuts.
