Peanuts, Valencia Park Community Garden, Shreveport, a photo by trudeau on Flickr.
Peanuts were planted in the Valencia Park Community Garden last spring by 4 geography students at Caddo Magnet HS. Subsequently, Valencia gardeners added many more seed peanuts to the patch.
In October the peanut patch will be harvested.
