Those Blasted Walnuts
It's a chore to pick them up, but it's good exercise. And we can save some for dyeing. The rest are raked into piles and then dumped across the way for the squirrels, or left in the road.
Last year, I raked a monster pile to the edge of yard and then forgot about it. This spring, it started growing.
So I got a rake and a shovel one day last week and took care of it.
The good news is that it had composted beautifully! There were four wheelbarrow loads full of walnut debris. I hauled it all across the way.
I figure it'll grow grass again sometime. In a decade.
In the meantime, it'll be easy to mow. And fun to see which weeds take that spot over first. I'm hoping it'll be the wild vinca. I like that stuff.
