I decided to share this painting and post by Fen because I love the NC Peanut history shared by Fen in his "Better Days" blog post about his North Carolina neck of the woods.The photos below were taken in my hometown during the 1950's when Enfield NC was the Worlds' Largest Raw Peanut market and the streets were lined with peanut trailers during the fall. I love the smell of Fall, which for me in Eastern NC is the smell of peanuts being dug up in field after field! When I was a little girl, I had a t-shirt that said "I work for Peanuts!"
We freeze the boiled peanuts to enjoy all year long, especially at NC State Football games!
Enjoy your Day, Carolina Style!
