Peanut roof

  Thanks to our most recent visitors, Marilyn and Jelson, the peanuts are harvested and drying on an outbuilding roof.

How long do you have to leave the peanuts up there to dry?

We left them to dry in the sun (covering them at night with a tarp to keep the dew off) for about a week, and then the weather turned wet, so we spread them out on a tarp in the house to dry out further. I'm thinking they should dry out the rest of the way without any more sun, although it certainly wouldn't hurt.
