I've got a dozen next to the stream at the cabin, hitting them with the mower provides a bit of action if dutch is on the wrong side of the discharge chute...I've beaned him a few times, he sees little humor in it...time for a snocaine hooter and then back to mowing...

I had a couple and their kid ask me if they could have my walnuts one year...I gladly said sure...they had an import pick up and was dragging the bumper leaving...they had smiles on their faces, I have to wonder how long it took them to jar them up...that's a lot of picking...

Used to have a hickory nut tree in my back yard at the old digs. Loved the taste, but a lot of work for a little bitty nut.
Lots of fun to hit with a mower, like Boo says about walnuts.
The hickory trees in the woods behind my house are dropping their nuts but the squirrels are chewing the husks off as quickly as they drop. I pick some up and put them under my feeders and they are gone in short order.
