After last years record walnut fall, I was out in the back yard and can't find a walnut, not even one. So, since last winter was bad does this mean no winter at all this year? any body else missing there nuts?

I wasn't thinking about it but there wasn't too many nuts in our 3 trees this year either , none lay on the ground

My dog Chet's missing his!!
I'll bet everyone is rejoicing in the fact that they don't have to pick those darned things up so much this year!

Don't have walnut trees but the hickory trees here the ground is covered with the nuts. May be the most I've ever seen underneath it.

Walnuts are just starting to fall. It seems there is not near the nuts this year compared to last.

I have several large walnut trees.
every other year they have a lot of walnuts.
some time they bear heavy every 3 years.
each tree is different.

I've been picking up Acorns to ship. Trees that did well last year not so good this year. Trees that were poor on not at all last year are so loaded I can take the ladder and pick them like apples. But that is the way it is most years the major trees rotate which are going to do well. Hickory nuts all over last year walking in the woods was like walking on a floor covered with marbles. This year I got a order for hickory nuts and there are no fresh ones to be found on the ground and in the trees. Same with the walnuts. Not so good this year but I blame most of that on the record cold last winter and cold spring.
Wild cherries are going crazy also. The deer just love them and Kare was pointing out a squirrel in the one by the house yesterday eating the berries.
