and the interesting thing is that they grow under the soil, not above it.

I love them, and feel terribly sorry for anyone who's actually allergic to them.

They just recently figured out that the soil around where I live is perfect for growing peanuts. A lot of local farmers have made the switch and it is doing great things for the local economy. Plus I can buy raw peanuts straight from the farm. Its a win/win!
