Last weekend I was outside doing some yard work and my neighbor hollered at me asking if I wanted some walnuts. Do I want walnuts I thought, of course I do! My neighbor has two walnut trees, and while some of the walnuts fall into my yard I was not going to infringe upon his bounty without asking. Luckily he asked me first! Now I was not going to partake of his walnut bounty without helping so I asked him if he would like help picking them up from his yard. He happily agreed to let me help.
For the next hour my neighbor, his wife, and I harvested walnuts. We had some near misses while harvesting walnuts from under the trees a few times, as the nuts were still falling. We joked about needing hard hats.
After our collecting was finished, I had quite the load of nuts! Keep in mind this is just my take from their yard!
Lawn mowing will be much easier for my friendly neighbors now!
My husband brought home a large plastic sheet to lay the walnuts on.
We got to work dumping them onto the tarp.
