We’re growing peanuts in our New York garden for the first time this year! Read on as we plant Jumbo Virginia peanuts!
Or maybe the title should read “We’re trying to grow peanuts this year!” so I don’t jinx myself. You might have read that we started our 2017 garden a few weeks ago, which is very exciting, but even more exciting is when we try to grow a new plant! This year the new plants are celery and peanuts! This post is all about peanuts though….!
I decided last year I wanted to try to grow peanuts, mostly because I was currently in a peanut butter eating craze. I did some research and saw some people in the North had successfully grown peanuts so I decided to give it a shot. Peanuts need a good 4 months of heat, with no frost, to grow, so let’s hope for a full 120 days of sun for them in our garden!
