The buyers who deal in that business will come in and cut them down and haul away for you, usually cash in advance. I just did that last fall with some aged out walnut on my farm.
They might be 16 inches at the base. I've tryed to find someone who wants them for free. No one around here wants them.

Not these, but the jumping one's days are numbered! It's dropping limbs in the driveway!


Started my holiday off with Green Eggs! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!

I'm cooking a traditional corned beef and cabbage today. But Allen doesn't like corned beef unless it's a corned beef hash. That's okay, more for ME. And the corned beef freezes well. So there's that.

My stepdad was Irish and he always did a lovely brogue each St. Patty's day. I never got enough of hearing it, and just thinking of it makes me miss him and wish I'd gotten it on tape. I grew up Catholic, our priests were all from Ireland, and we'd have these wonderful parish pot lucks each St. Patrick's Day. The drunker everyone got, the funnier the open mic night became. I have some great childhood memories of this holiday.

You might contact any of the food co-op groups in your area. I'll bet if nothing else, they'd be happy to come collect the walnuts.

The bad thing about being in Arizona without daylight savings time is that Sena and Lily get up way too early. They used to let me sleep until 9. It was bright and sunny at 6:30 this morning and so were they! Naps are more important than ever.

Top o' the day to ya from Admiral "D" #172!!
I outrank Captain D, but nonetheless, I receive zero money from the restaurant chain.

Happy St Patrick's Day!!

As my great English grand pappy used to say to his Irish mates back in the day......."May the road rise to meet ya, and yer goat never squat in yer soup!"

I will, HK, or should it be HKT, or just KT. Anyone in the running for synonym king, or maybe queen? Is anyone young enough to be a prince or princess of something?

Don't mind me, I just spent two days fixing my gate valves, which finally work, only to find a leak under the kitchen sink, and I left the tool for that in Florida!

Beauuuutiful day though !

I wouldn't mind getting some walnuts, but they probably wouldn't be any good now. Google says they should be harvested Sept -Oct. How about a walnut harvest festival next year if no one cuts them down, your majesty?


Happy St Patrick's day!

Mission Ysleta (El Paso)
was very impressive!
The art and architecture of 1682 is displayed with great care.
Statues are covered between masses to protect the paint colors.

The next Mission, Socorro, was equally beautiful!
It is 2 years younger than Ysleta Mission.

I now have a new drivers windshield and it sure is nice not to see a crack. I went to Red Bay Ala. to have it installed because no one local would guarantee a good installation with no cracks. While I was there I had them replace both of the driver door handles and latch. It's so nice to be able to open the driver door from the outside. My 94 Allegro Bay had every one calling it a "classic". When we went out to dinner and returned to the camping lot, my neighbor ask me if I'd seen the Tiffin motorhome owner's facebook page - their were 8 pictures of the "classic" that were taken at the restaurant while we were eating. Every time we went somewhere, when we got back to camp, people wanted to know where we went and what we did. I felt a little like Barb with Sena. It was a good trip and we meet a lot of great people. It was also nice to meet the people that have answered a lot of my questions when I'd call it with a problem.

Happy St Patrick's day!
Your edging toward that fifth position on that list with all that royalty talk. Your welcome to pick as many as you want. Bring gloves the outer shell will burn your hands, o and a big bucket, their bout the size of baseballs. There's a mulberry bush near the walnuts that's usually loaded. You'll have to get there before my neighbor, but at least he brings over some of the wine he makes from the berries.

Harvest festival sounds nice, y'all harvest I watch!
