Black Gold — Black Walnut Harvest

We have a small harvest of black walnuts! Black walnut trees are beautiful  and very valuable. Walnut trees produce delicious nutmeats and the tree’s timber are in high demand. A mature tree can yield 50K or more. Black walnut trees are a goldmine. Black walnut veneer — attractive and durable — is in demand. Walnut is especially popular for making furniture, gun stocks, etc… Timber thieves have been known to sneak into property and cut down valuable black walnut trees and haul them away. These criminals often use helicopters in these operations. For many, black walnut trees are more valuable for their fruit. Black walnuts can sell for up to $7 to $12 per pound — Chinese consumers have created a high demand for the American nutmeat. Recently a “nut thief” stole 140, 000 pounds (worth 400K) of walnuts  — that’s nuts!

These Nuts Stain!

Native Americans used the tree for its fruit and tapped the sap to make syrup and butter. Black walnut fruit turns ripe in October, its yellow-green husk covers the black Walnut. The yellow-green husk turns black and create a very strong black dye. This dye stains everything. Native Americans used this dye for their clothing, maps and writing. Now that we have our walnut bounty, its time to prep the nuts by getting rid of the husks. Husking is not hard, but you must wear gloves because these nuts stain! Check out this quick video to see how we “de-husked” our black walnuts:

It’s amazing how time consuming it is to get rid of the black walnut husks. You can buy equipment to help — a tree shaker ($5,000) or Push Black Walnut Harvester ($500) would make the processes much easier. But for now, We’ll stick with our trusty half brick.

  14. In accordance with my observation, after a property foreclosure home is offered at a bidding, it is common to the borrower to still have the remaining balance on the financial loan. There are many loan providers who try and have all rates and liens repaid by the future buyer. Nevertheless, depending on specific programs, regulations, and state legislation there may be quite a few loans which aren’t easily solved through the switch of personal loans. Therefore, the duty still rests on the borrower that has got his or her property in foreclosure. Thank you sharing your notions on this web site.
