We had black walnut trees in the Chicago suburb (Cicero) where I grew up. Good for nothing but squirrel bait. Must be a different variety?

been a good year for my this year picking up walnut

So far I have picking over 6250 lbs of walnuts - got 15 cent a lbs - same as last year

the buyer is open until Nov 5

not planning on picking up very much more for this year.

Just get the ones from across the street, most trees around town are just about done dropping the walnut.

Going to let the squirrel have them.


some days I am out picking up walnut for 6 hours a day, getting 3 or 4 cart loads ( 10 cu ft cart)

one cart load will fill 3 tubs full

for the month of Sept I picked up around 3860 lbs and they filling 106 tubs

we weights one of the tubs and it weighted over 55 lbs  before they went thru the machine to remove the husk
