When the black walnuts are ripe, I'll probably ask my neighbor if I can try some.  See if it's worth the effort to get the meat out.  I like them much more than english walnuts.

Hey Spud, it doesn't hurt to ask your neighbor about her walnuts. I have two "neighbors" that I've asked and received permission for their English walnuts. I'm still thinking about planting one myself. Unlike black walnuts, English are very easy to crack and extract. It's a night and day difference.

Thanks for the wish Randy.  I'm trying to talk myself into looking for a black walnut tree here and asking the person that owns it if they use the nuts.  I think there's one in the back yard of my neighbor across the street, but I'm like Daniel in that I don't like asking people for things.  I do give that neighbor some of my pears, but still hesitate to ask her.

I expect the pomegranate tree to grow here.  I'm planting it on the south side of the house where it will get lots of heat.  Before winter, I'll build a greenhouse over it to keep it from dying in the cold months.

I don't dilute my urine. I figure rain will do that. Asparagus is very hardy. Plus I've heard it is salt resistant. I was going to quit spreading pee this summer, but with Daniel's info, I may continue.

Spud, I wish I could supply you with black walnuts. They are ubiquitous around these parts. True, it takes some time and effort to remove the meat, but very much worth it.

I'm going to purchase another Pomegranate tree this year, and not from Burpee.  It was bare-root and never had one leaf.  This year I'm buying one growing in a pot from plantmegreen.com  It costs $77 with shipping.

I was considering buying a Black Walnut, but have decided not to for 3 reasons.  It would make a large part of my small garden space toxic for a lot of other plants, I would probably get very lazy about picking out the meat, and it would probably take a long time to produce.

A couple of days ago, I received 5 pounds of black walnut meat that cost me $10/pound.  It tastes good, so that will have to do me for now.

When we occasionally write/converse about silly (dare I use the word "inane"?) things in some of our groups, I often wonder what newcomers think. But then again, who cares(?).

Randy or Randall, I respond to either, the latter being more formal and how I sign my name. So Tom it is. Happy to read your comments here.

To answer Daniels question about my "Indiana yard": it's on hold. We had a cold snap this past week, even an inch of the white stuff overnight. I have started peeing in a bucket for my garden. Asparagus ground is getting the majority of it now. It'll be coming up in a month or so. I'm thinking (dangerous) the nitrogen will be good for it, and the salt will kill the weeds and grasses. Yes?

I am called Tom (and a few of other explicit names) locally, however there a couple of other Tom's here on Nexus. If I were to be called Ton here on Nexus It might cause confusions of which Toms here we are referring to. Lemme think what other name I could use.

Decades ago, when I was a grounds keeper, one of my client had a humming bird feeder. During lunch break I would sit and watch the  dogfights between the humming birds and the bees battling over the feeder.  It's amazing how the birds outmaneuvered the bees.

Daniel, I don't know how you find time to both "garden", read, and write here at A/N. Do you sleep only 4 hours? Has Ning returned?

I can imagine, it´s hard to help them to the end, but who would love them if we didn´t?We´re still recovering from Dido´s goodbye, but even so I´m very glad that Luna stays with us. Give Charlie my best wishes and a hug.
