Part of the fun of moving to a new location, especially a different region of the country, is trying to identify just what is in all those fields. My Dad trained me well, on corn and soybeans, but moving here has stumped me a little bit. The cotton was easy, tobacco too. But the difference between peanuts and sweet potatoes? A little more challenging. It wasn't until to peanut fields were turned over, were our guesses confirmed.
Do other people spend this much time discussing fields? I've even been known to chase down a tractor or two, just to see where they are headed!
Some fun peanut farming videos. Lots of tractor action!
So interesting. Now we understand the symbiotic relationship between peanuts and cotton, never would have guessed that!
