I did not ride/commute today.  My back is quite sore.  It isn’t from the different position on the commuter bike.  It’s from:


I have a big ole walnut tree in the back yard.  Every 3-4 years it has a banner harvest.  This is the big year.  Every afternoon I go out with a five gallon bucket and my little red wagon and pick up walnuts.  I haul and dump them in a nearby field.  I’m averaging two wagon loads a day.

The trouble is that if you look up at the tree, it’s still full of walnuts.


I also doubt that I will get in much of a ride on the roadbike tomorrow. I’m taking part in Wills for Heroes in the morning. I’ll probably ride there, but that’s only two miles or less.

Happy Friday,

  1. Do you keep any of the nuts and do anything with them? I posted a clip of the crawling T-Man!

  2. They’re black walnuts, much messier than the english walnuts you get at the store. That said, I’ll probably try drying and hulling a few. But I have 100s!

    Just happened to have just watched the Tuckster! You are so in trouble now!!!

  3. Ah – I guess I don’t know as much about nuts as I thought! 🙂

    And trouble is an understatement!!
