It was a good walnut harvest in the Loire this year. The many walnut trees around the village produced a huge crop and we collected a few in our pockets or in a bag every time we took the dog for her twice or thrice daily walk around the château. (We always have suitable bags in our pockets being dog owners. Lulu doesn’t often disgrace herself but you never know).
We brought a large bagful back with us and yesterday I realised the bag was still exactly where I had dumped it when we got home. So I tipped out the walnuts to have a look at them, make sure they were dry and start shelling a few.
The question is, what should I do with these? Would it be worth planting them? Does anybody want a walnut tree as we don’t have room for one ~ not one that’s big enough to give us walnuts anyway !!
