its a bit nutty

Unread postby Cricker » Tue Feb 18, 2014 3:50 pm

3dsportfishing (aka the squirrel) must have been really busy collecting a bunch of nuts last fall. today we planted what he couldnt eat over the winter in 24 count flats :D. 75 degrees in the greenhouse and heated floors should give them a good head start. 3d knows the varieties he gathered better than me but as far as i know theres a few varieties of chestnuts, 3 or 4 varieties of oaks, and a flat of crab apples. theres 504 of them in total :o . I never planted nuts and seeds before other than for gardening purposes (usually do cuttings) so we shall see if they grow up to be deer magnets. if they do grow we'll keep this thread for observations. if you see some guy crawling around under your nut trees in the fall dont shoot him its probably 3d :lol:

That's Cool,

This season while fishing at the end of season i gathered up some Walnut and Hickory nuts. The Hickory nuts are Amazing, but i think i goofed on the Walnuts. I peeled them, cleaned them , suned them to dry out a little and then stored them in the garage. I know i should have roasted them in the oven for a short while, but got sidetracked as usual. :oops: Now they have a moldy taste. :( And they look so nice inside. Is there anything i can do to salvage this batch or are they trash or animal food @ this point :?:

I wish i knew 55. Thanks for the offer but i cant even eat nuts. I had 18 inches of intestine cut outa me. nuts, because of the scar, have a potential of blocking me all up. If 3d chimes in he may know. Hes the nut expert

Bgcm, i'll try to keep this going and possibly do some more food plot threads in the future. I'll be planting alfalfa this spring.

2 weeks. Most chinese chestnuts are sending long roots. All the white oaks/chinquapins have roots. Red oaks and dunstans are starting to swell but pretty much the same.
