Walnuts are everywhere in my neighborhood. I have four trees myself. You can't walk down the sidewalk without nearly busting your keester from stepping on a walnut.

Bumper crop for sure this year. Squirrels are everywhere.

The Black Walnut tree is an excellent resource. The dried green husks can be used to make an anti-parasite tea, the nuts are tasty, the tree can be tapped and the sap boiled into a syrup, green nuts can be pickled whole in vinegar and eaten as a vegetable, dried husks were used by oldtimers as hair dye and husks can be used as a mordant (dye setter) in the fabric dying process. Lastly, the indians were said to shred the green hulls and place them in bags which were placed in streams and beaten to extract a substance mildly toxic to fishes. The fish were stunned and would float to the surface. I probably don't need to say that this is a highly illegal way to fish in a non SHTF situation.

The walnuts did very good. The pecans likewise. Not so the persimmons. No crop at all by all reports that I have plus my own! I have about 10 pecan trees and the fattest squirrels in the county.

Wet year here in Kentucky. Persimmons were loaded along with all the nut trees.
