RE: FINALLY I BEAT THEM TO THE PUNCH, OR WAS IS IT JUST A CASE OF ABUNDANCE?

Hahaha, I don't think I had met you guys in 2019, as I also did some posts about picking macadamia nuts. It was a constant battle with the squirrels unttil I figured it out.
Now I didn't have one of your fancy telescopic pickers and I had to climb the trees. A bit difficult at 4am in the mornings in the dark.

Yes, I got up before the squirrels at harvesting time and picked hundreds of macadamias and their outer shells are as hard as steel.
To be fair I left a fair amount of nuts below the trees for the squirrels.

I am glad that you guys had a bumper harvest.

!BEER and !PIZZA

@papilloncharity, sorry! You need more to stake more $PIZZA to use this command.

The minimum requirement is 20.0 PIZZA staked.

More $PIZZA is available from Hive-Engine or Tribaldex

More than likely we will not be around when the trees are big enough to bring to market. Our intention when we planted the trees was to leave some hard assets for our children. Black Walnut lumber is a prized wood and 20/25 years from now the trees should fetch a good buck.
When we first planted them we never thought about the walnuts that the trees would produce, so that is like a bonus.
Climbing trees is a young man's game which I loved doing as a kid. If I need to reach higher than my arm will allow, climbing a ladder is a lot safer.

Thanks for the beer and pizza my friend, always appreciated!

A sure investment that you planted there and yes indeed the nuts are a huge gift. Just the trees way of thanking you.
I also like how you spelled out the nuts into HIVE here. Very clever.

Never put a limit on your lifetime my friend as it is not in our hands and should you guys strike the 90's you will see those trees taking care of your grandchildren's needs, I hope.

Hahaha, I am only 67 now and I can still climb on the roof without a ladder, giving Marian many fits when she comes to look for me 🤣
Sadly not since the knee is acting up and now this is going to be a long story, as we had to cancel the operation today.

Blessings and !BEER and !LUV for Lady Robin.
