Over the last week or so, it seems that every time I go for a walk with our dog I get to collect really cool nuts and other tree seeds. Here is what I collected lately. Anybody want to try to identify what is on the picture? Some really cool permaculture trees are in the bunch (I think all of them are cool).

Well I'm pretty sure I'm at least seeing acorns. I have a few other guesses but am terrified of being wrong (especially in public!)

There are at least three varieties of acorns there: red oak, scarlet oak and white oak.

I stol.. forraged some honey locust seeds at par... friends house
Those look similar, honey locust?
And those round things look like black walnuts.

My father lives in the ghetto downtown on an 1/8 of an acre.
He has a leguminous tree and a black walnut.
Funny how you can look at somthing like a weed in a different light.

the pods are actually black locust and the big nuts are indeed black walnut. There are 2 more in there that are not as obvious.
 
It's in the permaculture playing cards. Here's the link: http://richsoil.com/cards
