GROWING PEANUTS


I was just reading about growing peanuts in Singapore, on  Gardening with Wilson .
He says you can just grow them by buying raw peanuts..... it is amazing what we can learn from each other. 

I will be seeing Wilson in Singapore early next week.

He writes......Do you know that the peanut is perhaps the only common legume that has its fruit development process all taking place underground? After the small, dainty, bright yellow flower fade, a peg is formed at the end of a long stalk which elongates and bury itself underground!

Hi Kate,

Thanks for linking up my post to your blog! Hope you and your fellow friends find the peanut interesting enough to grow!

It is a leguminous plant that is beneficial to grow as it fixes nitrogen from the air and adds it to the soil!

Nice meeting you in real life in Singapore today!
