Weight Loss Tips, Low Calorie Recipes for Peanuts
Peanuts are so plentiful - and I've got a cute little story that I'd like to share involving this versatile nut. Long ago, my great grandfather had a neighbor purchase the neighboring farm. The new neighbor was from another part of the country and he wanted to try his hand at farming.
For his first time out he decided that his crop would be peanuts. They were at a good price at the market and he had heard that they were easy to grow. So he planted and after a time, he became very frustrated. The peanuts were not bearing; there wasn't a nut on the bush.
My great grandfather's neighbor was very upset - cursing, slapping his hat on his jeans, stopping his boots and saying that he was going to move as farming was a useless occupation. And he'd been a really mean neighbor to my great grandfather who was a rather quiet man - at least according to his son - my dear old grandfather.
As the green farmer was cursing and shouting and preparing to leave for a more profitable area, my great grandfather offered to purchase the crop. The farmer shut up instantly; his eyes lit with an evil glint and he considered my great grandfather an idiot.
So they struck a deal and the farmer left shortly thereafter - and my great grandfather harvested a huge crop of peanuts that brought the family some much-needed money.
If the new farmer would have only pulled up the plants, he would have seen that peanuts don't grow on the bush - rather in the ground.
