Houston, We Have Peanuts

Valencia peanuts. Short-season crop.

My poke around the roots, last week, was inconclusive, so today, out of curiosity, I pulled up one of the plants. Despite a challenging season, I seem to have managed a crop. A modest one, at best, with only half a dozen plants. I doubt they'll bulk up any further with the chilly nights we're having, but I'll grant them another week. We're expecting lots of sun.

More on them later.


  1. first time I see such peanuts. If it is possible to grow also in Norway?

    1. I'm sure you could, Marco. Your climate is probably even milder than mine. Maturity is 95 to 100 days. You can start them indoors, like I did.
