I was so excited that we got almost 5 gallons of (still in the hull) Black Walnuts from our tree this year. I figured I could handle that. Unfortunately, I apparently waxed so lyrical about them, that My SO did a very thoughtful thing. He brought home a 35 gallon garbage can full...And this on top of 5 gallons+ of pecans. Not complaining, really, just a bit apprehensive about gettin it all done. Can't waste them, of course...

Thanks Sharon, as always:)

Cat, I think you have my address, it would be so nice to have a black walnut again, better yet if chocolate were wrapped around, you know? Hmmmmmmmm...

Nothing like a hint, is there, but I just thought I would help you with your problem, being friends and such...I definitely love pecans, too...haven't had them in a while either...


Thanks Cat, always such a treat to hear from you, brings a smile.

When I was a child we put the dropped walnuts in the driveway and let the tires do the dirty work for us. Holly has picked up 2 50# feed sacks of them from just one of our smaller trees. She wanted to sell them to some place but I don't know of anyone close that takes them anymore. I am going to ask her if she would be willing to let me dry and hull them that way if I can find someone who will shell them out on shares. Our squirrels eat them all year long. And I remove the sprouts all over the flower beds of the ones they forgot to return to during the winter and spring.

I'm glad to know they are good for us as well as very tasty. Thanks for that information. I've never known of any medicinal use of them.

Oh yes, Leaflady, I have had the driveway experience too...I sure wish I lived nearer, I'd help you lessen your numbers, for sure.

Thanks for writing, always so nice to hear from you.
