Question: 794-3112
I live in Florida just south of the Georgia line. There are a lot of peanuts grown around here. I am wondering if the shells would be nourishing for the soil. Can I till them into the soil? Linda

Mort's Answer:
Definitely. Any organic material will enhance your soil. It provides a rich soup for beneficial organisms that will release elements into the soil for absorption into the plants. Peanut shells, cocoa shells, coconut husks are all being used to give the soils a sense of humus.
