Peanuts 落花生

Today my dad emailed me a photo of the peanuts they harvested at 栗庵 Kurian, their vacation cottage/organic vegetable garden. I forgot peanuts grow underground! As the Japanese name for peanuts 落花生 “fallen from the flower” points out, peanut seeds start out in the flower above ground then fall and finish growing under the soil.

I love seeing the various vegetables and fruits they harvest at Kurian because it reminds me of how the four seasons are so important to bringing inspiration and variety to the table.

Read an introduction to Kurian in my original post here.
