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!
Joan, hope your pacemaker surgery goes well.
The heavy snowfall has melted due to temperatures the last few days being above freezing at night and well above freezing in the day.
Time for me to start my cold weather plants in pots. I've given up putting the seeds directly in the garden. Something destroys most of them, so I give them a good start in pots first, then they usually do well in the garden.
