.....Anvil may have to give it up. But in the meantime, he tried to take a picture of a true cluster of walnuts in a walnut tree, even to climbing on top the truck to get the photo. Didn't turn out well, but here it is, Such as it is?

The other pic was of a hickory tree.
And, anyone know where the original post went? Oh well!

The mighty Anvil shall survive to forge a new and tempered sword to smite the enemy within! His judgement shall ring supreme with the invincible Thor as his mentor, let the lightning strike! Let the thunder begin, to rumble throughout the hills and valleys of the Trolls, through to the halls of Asgarr....where the heros of old dine in boisterous merryment, and recount the battles of yesteryear......adjo...

I love walnuts!
Had two beautiful almond trees...planted them 15' apart..thought they would hold a hammock quite nicely.

What other pic, Anvil..a hickory tree?
Let me check the galery.

As long as I have lived here, just found another one maturing in a fence row. That fence row might well be its salvation. Brushing out over grown areas sometimes takes an unforseen toll.

Looks similar to the, uncommon around here, 'carambola' fruit tree my dad has in his backyard. The pulp looks and taste like cantaloupe..and when you ask most people if they know what a 'carambola' is? they won't know.

Never saw a hickory tree before..
Thanks Anvil

I've got one hickory tree on the farm and it's my favorite. Wonderful shade, beautiful shape...just don't park under it this time of year!
Have over 50 walnut trees and I get pretty tired of them. Loose their leaves too early, dropping limbs, they get those web things in them. Not a pretty tree.

Our Black Walnut tree does not have a nut on it this year.

....Walnut tree's year. Walnut trees in particular generally produce bumper crops of nuts every four years on average. Just nature's way I guess.
I remeber as a kid, mom had us collect walnuts and dump them in the driveway for traffic to hull them. Always collected enough to last several years.

Aren't most all "nut producing" trees that way? They produce every other year or so? I have a chestnut oak that is loaded every other year with acorns....nice big juicy ones too, the deer love them. I also thought that hickorys produce about evey other year also. That's interesting to know that walnuts are every 4 years.....hmmm!
