Comparing Walnuts To Apples

September 2, 2009

I just took a letter out to put in the mailbox.  On the way back, I was kicking walnuts out of the driveway.  It occurred to me as I was doing this, “These things are as big as apples!”

So I decided to compare walnuts to apples and see if I was right.  I got a Red Delicious Apple and a Jazz apple, and put the walnut smack dab between them.

Comparing Apples To Walnuts (

Yep, I do believe I’m right. Those walnuts ARE as big as apples!

It looks like we’re going to have a bumper crop of black walnuts this year.  These came from a smaller tree along side our driveway.  We have 4 or 5 HUGE black walnut trees in the back yard.  It’s like trying to walk over a carpet of tennis balls or something out there!

Too bad our fruit crop isn’t as good.  Our fruit trees don’t have near as much fruit as they did last year.  My dad was mentioning the same thing about his fruit trees back in West Virginia.  They were positively loaded last year, but not much fruit this year.  Maybe they decided they needed a rest.

But walnuts, we’ve got lots of those!
