Homegrown Peanuts

 I planted a small patch of peanuts over the summer and harvested them a couple of weeks back. I got the plants at a local greenhouse. I wanted to share as it was so much fun and easy to do on a small scale, they do well in loose soil and you pretty much plant and leave them until they start to die back then pull them up! I was a little too eager and roasted them the first day and they were so so, after a message with a local farmer I learnt you really need to let them dry out first. 

But if you have space they are a fun item to add to your late summer/ fall garden, I might plant some in the school garden next year.

Have you grown peanuts? if so do you have any tips?
