Its life no doubt began before our old farmhouse was built,
this Black Walnut tree seems to be delivering a bumper crop this season.
If you believe in old wives tales, this would seem to mean that we are going to have a bad winter.
If you are familiar with Black Walnuts, then you know they are quite a pain to harvest. The pretty, green ball hanging from the tree must be dried and then opened to then reveal the nut still in the shell. Maybe when I retire I will have time to take on this project.....or maybe not.
High in omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts are especially good for you. Though this health benefit intrigues me, I am content to leave them right where they are.
