This year I have gotten very excited about planting some peanuts as a different way to grow some protein and heal our soil at the same time.
Valencia Peanuts (the ones with the red skin) grow best in our crazy climate, so I ordered them and had them sent via UPS (shipping was just as much as the peanuts themselves!). $16 and 5lbs later, here they are!!! However, they require a good 150 days of growth to actually produce their peanuts, and we generally only get 120 days of frost free growing time so these little guys will start their journey inside this weekend. Cheers!
