Black Walnut Tree!

We went out to our yard to tame the far portion and began to prune and prune.  We came across these sweet-smelling, lime-looking, pretty green fruits.  "What are they?," we pondered.  Well, they are black walnuts!

These trees are very valuable.  This one might just pay for Miriam's college education!  We can make a tincture from the immature fruits.  The tincture is supposed to be a great antibiotic and antioxidant.  How exciting!

Wonder what other treasures are lurking around the next gardening corner!
