Agreed. That is a very nice piece, and a great photo of your granddaughter!
Side view of the old homeplace taken a couple days ago. The house was built in 1907, and my grandparents bought the place in 1917.
The garden is just about winding down for the year, but the walnut trees are loaded. Should be about time to start trying to get them all collected and shelled. My grandmother planted all those walnut trees from seed back in the early 1960s. She was in her 80's when she planted these trees, knowing full well she would never live to see them to maturity. As always, my grandmother was "thinking ahead" for future generations.
Beautiful place Big Man.
Walnuts are delicious on top of some vanilla ice cream....with a little (or lot) of Kahlua poured over it.

I like walnuts and I had a tree in the backyard until it kicked the bucket last year.I call it my firewood tree now.I planted it from a seedling when I was 8.
I never did get many walnuts from the damned tree though because the squirrels got to them first.That and having to get your hands stained just to get a few walnuts never appealed to me anyway---so I understand what you mean.
People think they are so rebellious and original, when really they are just banal, boring and dumb.
