Even with all the drought and high temperatures the walnut trees are loaded. I have no idea if they are filled out or not but it amazes me that they didn't drop their fruit. Now if we can just beat the squirrel to them. The pecans did not fare so well and I think they will be scarce this year in our area. Since Missouri is a major pecan supplier that equals higher prices in the store I bet. I am thankful I still have a healthy stash in the freezer and I think I will be careful how fast I use them. It will be a long time until next pecan harvest so I guess I will have to save plenty of walnuts instead.
Finished my pickled watermelon rinds today.
And on a positive note we will have apples this year. We have held our breath to see if they would remain on the tree through the drought to ripen. The apples are small but indeed we do have an apple harvest.
