[font=georgia]The Black Walnuts are in full swing in our area - just gathered two 5 gallon buckets of them. I find it humorous how few people know/care about their bounty and instead look at them as a nuisance. They are quite tasty and store very well. I have also used them in the past to make a beautiful stain for wood, an ink, and to dye cloth. Further research has led me to see there are numerous medicinal properties as well. I am planning on trying to make some Black Walnut Tincture following a recipe I located. Has anyone ever made the tincture before? Know much about/used it?
I am also planning on doing some random planting in various locations that would seem to suit the areas they prefer, hoping to add them to my main range. I will be selecting locations and burying them in sets of three in hopes that at least one will germinate. Has anyone had any luck with transplanting them in such a manner?[/font]
