We have a walnut tree in our back yard. Our back yard is tiny so when the walnuts fall...they cover our entire yard. I went back to pick them up one day and starting counting how many I picked up. Patrick came back when he got off work and I told him if he wanted to help he'd have to count as well. He was hesitant but gave in when I begged. For some reason I just was curious to see how many there were.
Well we picked them all up using plastic bags to protect our hands (walnuts turn your skin black). When it was all said and done we had 615 walnuts in garbage bags. 615! And there are still more in that blasted tree... after todays wind they are probably all on our ground. Maybe I'll count again when I pick those up. How many walnuts can one tree produce????

And here is my sweet husband and pup
