Justin had the trees shaken a few days ago. There was a dry north wind (bad for fires, good for walnuts on the ground) with no chance of rain so Mother Nature dried the walnuts this year. Hurray! Justin made a nice arrangement of tools for me on the lawn. We weren’t sure which would be the best. I ended up using just the metal rake and a dustpan.
One tree raked and bagged, 14 to go.
Almost half the trees are done. 25 bags today. Using a dustpan to scoop up the raked walnuts means there will be debris to deal with.
My vehicle is full!
Oops! Slow down on those turns, girl!
This afternoon I tried to go to Sophia’s championship volleyball game but there was a brush fire which closed the freeway about a mile from my house. All the traffic was diverted onto local streets – it was awful. 20 minutes to go one mile. I gave up, went home and tried a new pretzel recipe – a definite success!
Sophia’s team won. Thais sent me this picture:
