Peanuts in Chicago-Stop Laughing!
Hi All- Dont ask what possessed me to attemp peanuts in Chicago. I guess I just got seduced by the verbiage in the Southern Exposure seed catalog. At any rate, now that you have stopped laughing, can you help me understand what I will need to get a small crop? I am only growing a five foot row. Outside of the routine soil ammendments of compost and compost tea, are there other things that peanuts need? Is full sun the only option? Are their companion plants that they grow well with? Should I start them in the house?
I'd appreciate any help,thanks again.
