Anybody got their walnuts in yet?

Postby jltrent » Sat Oct 28, 2017 5:46 am

I picked up and hulled out 30 gallons yesterday. A lot of these came off three big trees that the inside of the walnuts has white nuts in them. Some people like the brown nuts better. If the weather next week is good may try to get about 30 more gallon as they are good this year and the trees are loaded. Before being hulled out I had two 7' loader buckets way on full.

This may be the best year I’ve seen. We haven’t gathered any in years, but thought maybe I’d get some this year. I don’t miss cracking them.

Don’t have walnut around here, but I’m getting some pecans.

I’ve gathered hickory nuts before, but they’re a bigger PITA to get the meat out than walnuts. I let the squirrels have them now.

Lots of,Hickory nuts here this year. My grandmother would sit for hours cracking them just to get enough to add to the Christmas candy. They really taste good but sure are hard to get the meat out of.

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.

You gotta shake limbs here to beat the hogs to them.

Probably so in the creek bottoms. Luckily my trees are not in their paths so far.
