Picking Walnuts, Cont.

My eyes finally moved from the cars to the orchard.  Such a gorgeous day!

The adventure began.

I did not fully realize the implications of the actual location of the walnuts.  One billion nuts were spread all over the orchard.  On the ground.  I failed to consider that one must bend and squat to pick up each little nut.

Bend, squat, stand.
Squat, stand.
Squat, waddle, try to pick up a couple, stand.
Bend, squat, stand.
Squat, stand.
Pray you can get up.
Pray more that you can walk the following morning.

28 pounds of walnuts...better than a gym membership!


  1. NEXT year. . .a motorized scooter!!!

  2. OMGosh! 28 pounds is an awful lot of bending and squatting girlfriend! I think after a few minutes I would of just sat on the ground and scooted around to pick them up! LOL! I am quite impressed with your fortitude and you most certainly have an incredible bounty! Would love to hear some of the plans for their use!

    1. THANK YOU! I had no idea what I was in for!!
