Another Nutty Development


Nearly every time I go to dig up a patch of dirt to plant something—whether it’s in the ground or a container—I come up with an unshelled peanut.

For a long time I thought nothing of this. Squirrels, I thought. They hide nuts.

But eventually, I wondered. Peanuts? Where are they getting them? We have no peanut plants that I know of. When was the last time you saw someone walking around with a bag of peanuts?

Is someone feeding them, is that it? And do they come over here to bury their loot with me?
