My sixteen peanuts, the shoots and leaves

Sixteen little plants altogether, with a very tight spacing of 6 inches either way. We tried some of these last year, tucked in underneath the chillies or cili padi, producing reasonably good peanuts.

Peanuts are growing fast, in the sense that the moment shoots emerge out of the soil, there are already a couple of leaves.

Some are growing faster than others. We cut drinking straw in short lengths and put into the soil as marker..... But Kakdah did caution about the open straw may collect water and become aedes mosquitoes breeding ground!..

Kakdah regularly buy peanuts, for her chillied peanut paste or popularly known as Sambal Kacang in Malaysia. We just put aside 20 seeds from a kilo bag of peanuts she bought from Carrefour Alamanda Putrajaya for this adventure.
