The article presents the feelings and experience of the first day in the life of a intern of the journal "Southeast Farm Press." The intern learned more about peanuts than he will ever remember this summer. From twin rows to tomato spotted wilt, he tried sometimes unsuccessfully to sound like he knew what he was talking about. Most farmers just nodded politely and proceeded with a clearer explanation of whatever he was messing up. Everyone he came into contact with was more than willing to talk, although he thinks he just got lucky and came at the right time. Ample rain and the promise of a good peanut crop were in his favor.
