Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

@emch, my mother had 6 Black Walnut trees along the front yard. I was 10 years old before I figured out none of the other kids in the neighborhood had green hands during walnut season!! But I still love them, so stately.

@cheriej I can never get over how many beisbol-sized nuts each skinny little tree can produce

@emch same here! And don’t even think about standing under them when they begin to ripen! They will take you out!!

@cheriej try it sometime in tornado conditions -- the flying walnuts sounded like boulders hitting the roof of the van LOL
