Re: BUTTERNUTS, YUM
2 YEARS AGO, I HAD A BUNCH I DRIED IN MY DRIVEWAY, I HAD 10 GALLONS. WHEN I PICKED THEM UP AFTER a few days of sun, i had jsut under 5 gallons. then next spring i had butternut seedlings popping up all through my yard and garden and pinetrees. ha i dug them up put tthem in my front yard and sold them for $10 a peice. we gather all ours off our farm trees in the fall and put them in a giant pile of fly ash, sand, and top soil mix. and a friend (retiree) plants them throughout the farm in the woods. i planted 2 on my property that i grew from nut. 3 years ago. one is 5.5' and the other is just shy of 5' i highly recommend putting tree tubes around them. i watered them frequently through sdry spells their first year. this year i have about 70 northern english walnuts to plant.
