All look to be scarce around here this year. The two large black walnut trees in our yard have the fewest nuts on them that I can ever remember.

That was last year at my place. I had never seen such naked walnut trees.
What few there were never had the chance to fall from the trees before the squirrels got them.
Made one less chore before mowing the lawn late in the season. ;)
But then, Forty miles north at my brother's, the tree next to his house was loaded. :confused:
This year we seem to have a normal amount of walnuts. Reminds me I need to go and check my persimmon trees.

We downsized, and moved just before Christmas, last year. We had a big English Walnut tree in the front yard. The Mrs. wouldn't let me cut it down, so for 40 years, I fought crap on my truck, leaves, husks, tent catapillars, starlings. We don't have a single tree in the yard now, and I don't miss it one bit.

Dave the persimmons seem to be plentiful. A lot of green ones dropped from the trees during our extreme hot spell the first 3 weeks of July.

Looking at the oak trees today, most of them seem to have a light acorn crop.
