wonderful!... I love the ones I didn't plant as much as the ones I laboured over. If you leave peanuts for your squirrels you'll have peanuts sprouting too.

VERY glad to say that we don't get squirrels! We were plagued by them in Kent, they dug up bulbs and plants, buried acorns and conkers, did all kinds of damage! What do peanut plants look like?

Peanut is a legume, their foliage looks a lot like peas.

I think it's a native fern.

Many years ago my Dad tried to keep adiantum aleuticum growing (on an island in Muskoka Lake) and finally had to admit that it was not hardy enough to survive successive cold winters... The property owner called it "Maidenhair fern" and loved it's black stems and laciness... but had to settle for cinnamomea. NOte: have recently found that you call peanuts "Monkey nuts" lol... downsouth they're called Goober Peas! Tis the season for Peanut Brittle!!

Peanut Brittle = broken teeth if you're not careful! I steer clear of it...

I'll have to look at Cinnamonea - don't know that one!

Had to check my spelling.. It is (properly) Osmunda cinnamomea...bracken fern... grows lush and tall, I have some in my back garden...think I have a pic in my Garden page...
