Adobe And Peanuts

Categories: Vegetable Growing

Is adobe land good for the peanut? Is it harder to start than in other

soils or not?

It is not good at all. Peanuts require the finest, mellowest loam with

sand enough to prevent crust, and moisture even and continuous. The

surface must be kept loose so that the plant can bury its own bloom stem

and the under soil light and clean so that it will readily shake from

the nuts and not stain them. Adobe is the worst soil you could find for
