Monday's agriculture website - Peanut Butter Lovers

Share |
March is National Peanut Month, so what better way to celebrate than with a website just for Peanut Butter Lovers? National Peanut Month began as National Peanut Week in 1941. It was expanded to a month-long celebration in 1974. Show your Peanut knowledge by sharing some of these facts with your friends:

* Peanuts are not actually nuts at all! They are legumes, like beans, peas and lentils.
* Americans eat 3 pounds of peanut butter per person every year. That's about 700 million pounds, or enough to coat the floor of the Grand Canyon!
* Peanuts may be a favorite food, but we've found many uses for their shells too! You might find peanut shells in kitty litter, wallboard, fireplace logs, paper, animal feed and sometimes as fuel for power plants!
* Two peanut farmers have been elected President of the United States: Thomas Jefferson and Jimmy Carter.
* One acre of peanuts will make 30,000 peanut butter sandwiches.
