It seems too early for it to be this cold in NWMO! At leasyt it should kill the green in the soybeans.

Hauled in a cart (late 30s IH pickup trailer) full of walnuts to the local CO-OP yesterday. After hulling they weighed out at 388 lbs. My girl got $42.68 for her efforts (and dad got a happy girl!). Price was $11 per hundred. Now she's scheming about hiring classmates and going pro. Good job for 8 year olds too! Theres probably a couple of trailer loads out there yet.

hey mojo we got down to 28 degrees last night, we were waiting for the freeze to kill the rest of our greenies too, we got about a 1/2 inch of rain yesterday but maybe by tomarrow afternoon we can get back at it. nobody around here has been able to do a whole field because of wet spots and immature beans. if your daughter wants walnuts send her my way.. we have tons again this year.

Having two big pecan trees in my small yard was not great fun for me.
My kids, however looked forward to the good pecan years. They gathered them and walked down to a store that bought them! They got some extra spending money on those good years.
