One of the joys of moving into a new home is watching and waiting to see what types of treasures can be found as trees fill out and new life comes up out of the ground throughout the summer.
We recently discovered that we have two black walnut trees in our front yard. Seth has been researching a bit about black walnuts.
The harvesting of these little gems is nothing short of insane. Really, the amount of work you must put into just one bite of walnut, hardly seems worth the effort. My husband though, bless him, sees our black walnut trees as treasures and is already planning a harvest day come fall. (Truly, we may need weeks!)
Today, he had the girls gather some of the ones that have prematurely fallen from the tree.
They cut off the hulls and washed off the nuts and they have been set aside to dry over the next couple of weeks…and then, the real work begins.
If you have a minute, or ten, you could watch this. Alright, who’s with me?
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? (My apologies to any readers who were not children of the 80’s. Actually, it’s from a pretty entertaining movie. I take that back, you’re welcome!)
What hidden treasures do you have around your home?
