Jennifer just knew we could make some good extra money picking up a few black walnuts. "Good extra money" is of course a relative term. The above image is a shot of the load of walnuts we picked up around our place and the Blakemore's farm. We didn't spend really all that much time picking them up, maybe 2 hours total. By the time I had time to take it to a weighing station they were down to $10 per 100 lbs. The borrowed trailer sat for three weeks with the same amount of walnuts in it.
For the trouble, we sold our black walnut for a whopping $35! Keeping in mind that we purchased a $45 walnut picker to start off the season I guess we'll have to do it again next year to get out of the hole!
