i broke my BIG RULE. which is, if i cannot be organized enough to get what i need when in town, i have to wait till the next Town Day. well...i forgot toilet paper yesterday and also garbanzo beans. i really wanted to make hummus. so. FAST run this morning. and on the way out of town, i had a sudden urge to stop and see if that walnut tree by the Brew Pub was doing anything. you might remember that i was told about it last year, but when i looked, there was nothing....so, thought i'd just look. and as Cindy says, Glory Be.
i emptied the big basket. took the time to remember i want to make an altar cloth of this pattern next
last year, i don't know why, i just assumed it would be in the Fall that the nuts would fall. well,.....Wrong. here they were lying gently under the tree and i filled the two cloth shopping bags but still leaving some there . Walnuts. i have Walnuts.
and i forgot to upload the last pic. will do that one as an edit. but . the old cast iron is set to work.
and JUDE, if you look here...How is best to keep some of them for adding later? is in the basket good? so there is air circulating? is inside better where they won't get wet with these Moonsoon rains? and i just thought...would it be best to just scatter them on the earth as they were when they fell from their Tree? Some i will give to Marti when she returns. she, being much more adept than i am with dye magic, with understanding the Substance and what it wants. but there will still be enough left to Just Go till next harvest. How to keep them?????
