Growing a Peanut Plant from Seed

(Growing a Peanut from Seed - 01) One day when we were in a supermarket, we saw some raw peanuts for sale, and purchased a bag.  We had not seen peanuts growing, since we live in New York State, which is too far north to grow peanuts as a crop, so we decided to plant a few peanuts in a pot, and see what would happen. This is what grew a little over a week later.

(Growing a Peanut from Seed - 03) In this photo we can see a new peanut plant starting to grow. Peanuts are not really nuts; they are members of the bean and pea family.

(Growing a Peanut from Seed - 07) Then one day we say what looked like a flower bud starting to open.
(Growing a Peanut from Seed - 08) So we looked a little closer, and saw that it really was a flower bud.

(Growing a Peanut from Seed - 14a) We are always amazed at the amount of detail that God puts into His creations, such as the sunburst design on the petals as well as the shape of the petals.

Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
