Peanut harvest part 2

As the threat of rain increased, the harvesters decided to pick up the drying peanuts a day or two sooner than anticipated.

This guy did the picking up.

And this guy held the peanuts for the transport trucks. 

Apparently the fabulous harvest team finished minutes before the heavy rain started. Reminds me of turning in a college paper with only seconds to spare before the deadline. Not that I ever did that.

After the harvester came through Nathan and I gleaned a bit of what was left behind in the field. 

I would not recommend these shoes for gleaning peanuts out of a sandy field.

We thought it might be fun to make our own peanut butter with these beauties. 

This is either a really good idea or a really bad one.
