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.

Spud reminded me of the old "Cotton Fields Back Home" song ("When I was a little baby, my momma would rock me in the cradle...."). A new (old) song to sing for my grandkids!
Daniel, when I planted my almond tree and buried persimmon seeds (etc) not that long ago (it seems), I wasn't sure I'd live long enough to see them produce. But, voila!, I'm literally enjoying the fruits of my labor. So yes, by all means, go for it.

Randy, I cook cotton balls like I cook everything else. Very carefully :)

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!

I grew peanuts once just to see if they would grow.
One year I grew a few cotton plants
They grew and produced a few cotton balls.

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.
