Oh nuts!

To say “Oh nuts” means there is a degree of disappointment.  Or it can be used to express favor.  Such as, when I say “I’m nuts about these nuts”!

We joined the squirrels, crows, and Steller’s Jays today by collecting walnuts.  There are so many  that we spent no more than 15 minutes collecting about 200 walnuts. There are a plethora of nuts for us and the critters but we are going to test our walnut drying skills before we collect more.

Our estimate is that the oldest walnut tree is 90 years old and was planted shortly after the house was built. There are four walnut trees on the property with a wide age range.

More preparation for the fall season included the instillation of the woodstove pipe.
