A Pocketful of Goobers
There wasn't anything that George Carver couldn't grow. He knew almost everything there was to know about plants. But when the boll weevil hit the South in the early 1900s, not even George knew how to save the cotton crops. It was then that George turned his attention to the common goober, the peanut, and created hundreds of useful products from it, turning peanuts into a profitable crop for the South.
