Grow a peanut

Peanuts grow in sandy soil. The plant is a vine, growing along the ground, while the pods push into the ground. Water well when planting, then not again until they sprout a week later. Avoid over watering. They need 130 days to mature. Very susceptible to frost. The foliage will yellow when ripe. To harvest pull out the entire plant and let it dry for 2-4 weeks. Any raw peanut can be planted.

Though I know we are late, let's grow peanuts.
June 12, Day 1: Plant the nut, don't let it split or it won't grow.
July 8, to many days: Didn't grow. Super rain, dry out. Ignored. Failed.
