Daniel - you don't need nut trees. You have us.
Cooking cotton balls: I don't know, but I've been told you have to wait 'till they get rotten.
Kathy, with more land, I too would try growing a few cotton plants, just for fun.
I tried peanuts once and my poor memory wants to say, nothing came of them.
Kathy, how do you cook your cotton balls? Tee hee.
Spud, I agree with your peanut classification. Growing them is fun, but harvesting them--another story. Pull, shake dirt, pick, wash, dry, break shell open. Whew!
Wow, you are a nutty guy Randy (smile).
If I had room and the wherewithal, I'd grow every kind of nut I could. Same for fruit trees.
Personally, I think peanuts should count. Yes, I know it's not a nut technically, and I'm OK with saying it's not a nut if your talking about scientific classifications. However, if it looks like a nut, tastes like a nut, is sold with other nuts, & etc, for all practical purposes, it's a nut.
True, almond trees can be grown at 40 degrees latitude, even with our cold winters (except this one). Although my tree is only about 10 years old, it seems to produce every other year--not really that unusual. For example, we had no walnuts, black or English, last year. And my neighbor's pecan trees were bare, also. I didn't look for hickory nuts since I have plenty from previous years.. Besides, they're a pain to crack and remove the meat. I also have access to a friend's butternut tree. Let's face it, I'm a real nutty guy! (I've grown peanuts in my garden before, but that doesn't count.)
Best wishes for your pacemaker surgery, Joan!
