This is how we spent the day yesterday, gathering walnuts and still today my feet hurt! After we cleaned the flesh away, using gloves otherwise our hands would be stained for days, we laid them out in the sun to dry. We took them in at night and put them out again this morning, they won't be cracked open until they've dried well. To be honest I do dread it when the time comes to break them, they are so many and it can be so much strain on the hand that holds the hammer.
Still all this work and we'll have a pretty good supply of walnuts to make walnut pie and other sweet treats :-)
