Years ago I bought some Chestnuts from a grocery store, but didn't like the taste at all.  Perhaps I didn't bake them long enough.

Chestnut trees grow wild here. To be edible they need to be baked in the shells for about twenty minutes.
Black walnuts are also close by. And hickory but I've never tried the hickory nuts.

I can understand that, Randall, I grew up in the post war poverty. I still try very hard not to waste food, but I´ve stopped eating leftovers like I was taught. It causes weight problems.

Daniel, you've got me curious. I'm not sure if I know what chestnuts even taste like. They're surely not the same as the water chestnuts in chop suey, etc.? I'll have to google both of them when I'm done here.  In any case, I'm glad to see you're getting into planting nut trees.

Chris, my arugula comes up voluntarily in my garden (since it usually goes to seed). I hate to see it go to waste, and it is pretty. So I do mix it in my salads, but still, it's too strong for me to really enjoy.  I'm one of those persons that will drink milk that's soured just so not to dump it down the drain! Such a product of "the great depression" parents!

Arugula  best in a mixed salad.

Spud, I'll have to watch that Steve Martin movie. I love him.
Arugula is such a pungent lettuce. I'm really not a fan.

Spud, I just dropped a few seeds at the end of the tomato row. The cotton didn't take up much room at all.
Daniels trees look like what we call scrubs around here. The ones left over after the good trees have been harvested out. Then the scrubs get larger but they don't usually make straight, sturdy, trees.

Daniel, I see you're planting Arugula.  I've never eaten it or even heard of it until I watched one of my favorite movies, the very funny My Blue Heaven.  

Steve Martin plays a criminal that has been secreted away by the FBI in a small community until he is to testify against a mobster.  He's just leaving a grocery store, with a cart full of steak that he's put low price stickers on, when he's stopped by management, and ask how he likes his shopping experience.  

They tell him to let them know if there's anything he would like them to stock, and he says "Arugula!"  They ask what that is and he gives them a look, and says "It's a veg-e-table."

Daniel, congratulation on clearing that large area of those tasty weeds.  Most of those trees seem to be leaning a lot.  Is there high winds that come through there, or something else that makes them lean?

Randy, that song always goes through my head when I hear or see the word cotton.
