Nuts

A photo from about three weeks ago.  Most of the Black walnuts seen here have decomposing husks at this time.  The Black walnut tree put out by my estimate about 2,000 nuts this fall.  From the middle of September to the middle of October my backyard is a hardhat area.  One of these little bundles falling from 20 to 30 feet in air hitting you will bring you to your knees and bring a tear to your eye.  I try to pick them up, less for harvesting purposes, and more to get them out of the walkways as you can twist your ankle stepping on them.
