One of my goals for the winter is to write a detailed article on processing and eating butternuts and black walnuts.
As a test, I focused this afternoon on a tree I call Eleanor, which has a high kernel-to-shell ratio, collecting 640 mostly green-hulled nuts under that one tree (partly, it wasn't mowed, so I could not get all of them). My estimate is there were probably 1,000 on the ground and still green, and it had been dropping plenty for several weeks before. This was its last gasp of the season, they were dropping all around me.
