Ever Wanted to Grow Peanuts?

Peanuts are a subtropical legume crop needing relatively warm growing conditions and about 500 mm (or more) of rain a year. In an area where rainfall is reasonably distributed throughout the growing season peanut plants can produce an amazing amount of pods. Like so many other plants, peanuts require a free draining soil which has been worked over thoroughly.

It might be a fun thing to try out and something a little unusual to add to our monthly competition table!
