Peanuts - When to harvest?
I live in Dallas and have a raised garden in my back yard. I decided to plant a couple of Jumbo Virgina Peanut plants, just to see if I could grow them. They sprouted quickly, grew a ton of leaves and then it took weeks and weeks for the plants to get yellow flowers on them. Then, the plants grew bigger and bigger and are literally taking over a huge part of the garden now.
The other day, I decided to dig down a little and see if there were any peanuts in the ground. I found one and it was almost full size. It was a white color. I don't know a thing about peanuts, so would someone with experience tell me what I am looking for, when to harvest and then what to do with them? I heard they have to be dried, but don't know the complete process.
