Back in May, the Saint and I left our Georgia Gardens to visit a South Carolina Garden. The Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens to be exact. Click HERE to see more about this awesome place. Can you tell what type of mulch they used in this flower bed?
Okay, did you know it was peanut shells due to the title of this post? Well, of course you did. I learned of boiled peanuts while living in Germany. Ah, the things one learns in a forgein country. We had a good friend from South Carolina and he often talk of getting fresh boiled peanuts from roadside stands. Since he was a bit older then us, we assumed he was talking of the olden days as we had never heard of such a strange thing. Click HERE to learn about Boiled Peanuts.
Now that we live in the Deep South, we know what our friend was talking about. People set up roadside stands along busy city roads, county roads, grocery store parking lots, etc. I have tried the things and I don't care for them. I like my peanuts ripe, roasted and salted. But with all the peanuts a boiling, some one eats them. And lots of them so it make sense to recycle the shells into PEANUT MULCH, In the Garden...
