George Washington Carver invented the peanut when bees stopped stinging!!!!!!!!!!!!
George Washington Carver experimented with methods of crop rotation and the development of alternative cash crops for struggling sharecroppers--ex-slaves--where land had been worn out growing cotton. He worked to find products using peanuts, sweet potatoes, soybeans and pecans.
As he was growing up as a slave, he had a lot of interest in plants, and found that the peanut was his favorite kind of vegetable.
So many peanuts were being grown, that George Washington Carver had to find other uses for peanuts.
There's this new thing called the library
No it was not. George Washington Carver needed to find more uses for peanuts, because there were way too many peanuts being grown, so he created peanut butter.
