You sure you aren't in my house??Hey, found a couch in here!! think there's a table in the dining area....turned storage area.
OK, knowing little about peanuts other than I can buy them at the grocery store ...It's peanut harvest time here and farmers are concerned. Turkey and deer are loving the nuts!
Yes, they grow underground. When time to harvest, they go thru with an implement on the tractor that scoops the plant out by the roots, flipping it out and over. The roots and attached peanuts are then up and exposed to dry out some.. a few days later they come thru and lift those, taking the pnut, discarding plant. The plant is quite often then sweep up and roll baled for a forage crop...mostly for cattle. But in these processes, some p-nuts are lost in the field. Lots of protein in the nut and the shells, vines. Wildlife scavengers eat ok.OK, knowing little about peanuts other than I can buy them at the grocery store ...
I thought they grew underground. Do the turkeys and deer know they are there and dig them up??
