I ordered some Early Spanish peanuts from Shumways, dug out a new raised bed (2 rows, 3' wide by 7' long), filled up the bed with 3 part topsoil (compost, sand, cow manure), popped in a new soaker hose and sewed the seeds.
Does anyone have experience growing peanuts? If so, can you give any advice on your methods, techniques or schools of thought? I'm very excited to get these going as it seems my region (8b) isn't always the region one would thing of for peanut growing/harvesting.
