    Can’t wait to see you chowing down on those beauties. Your joy at the peanut harvest was obvious. So cool!

    As I am sitting in Suffolk, VA – Peanut Capital of the World – eating some fine, large, lightly salted “Virginia” peanuts, I found it interesting that, indeed, you are able to grow them up in PA. I know that Virginia Peanuts can be grown in Virginia, N.C. Texas, and Georgia, but hadn’t thought that PA was warm enough.

    Seriously, though, there is no better Autumnal smell around Suffolk than in October (coincidentally around the time of our “Peanut Festival”), when the local farmers have pulled their peanuts, and they are drying in the field. To me, that is now the smell of Fall. I love me some peanuts….
