Has anyone tried growing peanuts perennially by just leaving a plant in the ground? We are in tx, so I'm wondering if they would rot after we getour singular freeze in the winter. Any thoughts are welcome! Trying to figure out how to grow everything perennially or self sown!

Over here in Oakland I think we have a similar winter as far as cold,  very few frosts.  I left some black peanuts in the ground too long into the fall/winter and the winter rains here sprouted the peanuts  so I thinned them and have peanuts again this year.  I would recommend protecting them from rain once the plants die down, this should help prevent sprouting and mold.   I recommend either harvesting some or moving some pods from the plants you leave because otherwise there will be a lot of peanut sprouts in one place.
