Bountiful peanut harvest...

Had been fooling around growing peanuts in the potager for about three years...


The last two years had seen harvests that were, hmmm, pitiful... to say the least...

Today, the leaves showed some signs of yellowing... 
So, decided to do some harvesting... 
Was thrilled to see the scales tipping at 3.3 kilograms...

Immediately called my third sis in Malaysia...
Advised me to put the peanuts out to dry...
The roots too, she suggested to dry...
And make peanut root chicken soup later on...

While harvesting the peanuts, discovered a radish root 'hiding' within...

Topping off the rainy and cloudy weekend, a neighbor brought over some 'yuzu' citrus for us... nice...
