Now that we’re into June, there shouldn’t be a danger of frost (we hope) and it’s time to plant a few warmer weather crops. This year’s new additions are Valencia peanuts, a variety known to produce well in cooler climates. They came in the mail as shelled peanuts and all Kindergartners dutifully planted them about 6 inches apart. in rows about 18 inches apart. They should be ready to harvest at the end of September. I’m hoping these same students will harvest them as First Graders. The Kindergarteners also reseeded the sunflower house. It will provide a welcome shady spot for reading and cooling off later in the summer.
