Topic tags/keywords: walnut

Hi everyone. My wife and I are out doing some yard work and clearing an area for a veggie garden. I have (3) 3-4’ tall walnut trees I just dug up (very deep holes to make sure I got all/most of the tap root). They’re out by the road. Send me a PM if you want to pick them up.

Sure wish I could PM you saying

”I’ll be right over to pick them up!”

... but I can’t… They’d probably be dead by the time I got there and back here! LOL

Thanks for the OFFER though…!! LOL’

Put them in a BIG envelope, add a bunch of stamps, and mail them to me. Try not to get the outside of the envelope dirty, I’m kind of a neat freak.

And could you throw in a few bucks. There’s a new tool that I have my eye on…

Heh.. it’d have to be a pretty big envelop. Some of the trees I was pulling out were branching and were 4’+ tall. The tap root was 4’ as well, if not longer in some cases.

Related, I’ve been dealing with a rotator cuff injury for the past couple days

Geez, super… we all have our problems. Maybe if you didn’t stretch so much…

Just curious – did you originally plant them or did they just sprout up? I have some black walnuts and would like to throw the nuts in the ground and get some saplings started but squirrels and chipmunks make off with them (I’ve tried).

The grew on their own. The saplings grew slightly downhill of where the big trees are.. so either gravity did the work or squirrels did
