Garden update-peanut plants

yes,peanut plants..not pea plants,I mean, PEANUT plants...
In some countries, they call peanuts, GROUNDNUTS..coz these nuts grow
in underground pods...
These are root modifications..
Also,all legumes FIX NITROGEN..
AND which is why,legumes kinda RE-ENRICH the soil , by converting air
nitrogen to soil nitrogen..
they fix nitrogen back in the soil.
needless ,I had to try out this idea.plant these nitrogen fixing plants.

Needless,while I assembled by pots using recycled material,I kinda
loosened up the soil,mixed it up with my old treated veggie garbage
and then while planting, I placed a peanut pod in each pot,somewhere
in mid depth of soil filling.

for a month,I waited and eagerly expected peanut plants to come out..
they never did.
And ,months later,after the loose soil kinda settled down at a lower
level,I noticed,two strange sprouts in two pots..and on closer
examination,the sprouts were emerging from PEANUTS!
whoa..what happiness!

I let them grow out..

I am such a negligent plant parent..

Actually,I wanted to see how the plants responded to on and off water
that spills into the pots during thunderstroms WHICH WERE FAR TOO
FREQUENT back then,even now...rains out of the blue here!

hmmm...and i cheated and watered them on two different occasions in a
couple of months, when it got too too sunny.


And then ofcourse, i let all three surviving plants -the sweet potato
plant,the spinach plant and the peanut plant ALL DIE .due to lack of
watering in the past few weeks...

either ways, I am moving out and they would have died after I yeah,,,why not let them die while I am here,no?(stupid sad
logic-my way of coping)whatever
