Busy Weekend

This has been a busy weekend.

Yesterday I was at the Plains Peanut Festival. There was a good crowd and the Peanut Commission had fresh fried peanuts to let folks sample as well as picking up recipe brochures.

There were also grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from the Buying Points Association and samples of Jif, Planters, and Mars products.

There was the usual parade and of course President and Mrs. Carter were there.

Here are some pictures from Plains.

Then today we had a Television crew in shooting a feature on peanuts for the program America's Heartland.

They were on Armond Morris' farm and got to see maturity testing, digging, picking and got to sample boiled peanuts.

Here are some pictures from their visit.

You can also go to You Tube and find videos on the Peanut Commission page.
