For anyone that doesn’t know what a walnut seedling looks like, this post is for you. We have been discovering a tremendous number of walnut seedlings not only in our yard but also in our garden. We have a bunch of squirrels, and last fall I raked all the walnuts into a pile for them. Apparently they didn’t want to eat them all. 🙂
I decided to keep one of the seedlings, but am digging up the rest, because we already have several large walnut trees, and don’t really have room for anymore, with what we want to do. But for anyone who loves trees, and maybe even wants to make some money down the road, walnut trees can be worth a lot of money. If you grow the tree really straight, you can get up to $1,000+ for it, when you sell it for wood. Many people do just this to supplement their retirement.
Aside from that, aren’t they really cool looking? Inside the seed looks exactly like a heart. 🙂
