The winds blown by the wind 호두코믹스 looked like palm leaves with a rainy day, which reminded me of Watercolor Wimples Homer. Although this fictional tree was not the only parallel of a coconut palm. A large walnut split the earth around me with an audible sound.
I was here to assemble a bag of these nuts, but was moving very carefully, with one eye, looking at the crown of a huge tree. I saw that these cannon nuclei (the size of lime) can be made with my hood, and I did not plan to get a similar blow. Fortunately, a rich, water soil, soil at the base of the tree, was dotted with fragrant nuts, and I had to be in a dangerous zone for a while.
Despite the fact that the Wild 호두코믹스 (Jungians Ingra) is tasty, its defense nullifies all reasonable attempts to get to it. Under the thick exoskeleton there is an impassable inner bark, and, getting inside, brain-like gyros make it almost impossible to extract any significant amount. Often one of the recommended methods in the past was to drive them by car. Apparently, the tires and bullet – shaped shells were so popular that most of modern walnut lovers turned to more surgical extracts, such as large wooden hammers.
It should be noted that the nuts sold in banks in the supermarket are English nuts, and not from New York.
Fortunately, my goal was to collect only the outer husk of nuts. Beautiful fragrant and green nut during the first collection becomes incomparably dark brown. They can be turned into saturated dark brown ink, which is the artist’s dream. I would like to share this autumn ritual with my little girl. At heart, I hoped that she would abandon her baths with brilliant mucus for a long time to evaluate something more organic.
Walnuts have always been valued by people. Dark brown wood of wood is solid, durable and is relatively easy to work with it. And although nut production is a real test, it served as valuable food for both indigenous Americans and settlers. Walnut trees were also planted because of their crown, which, as they grew up, shaded both at home and courtyards. In the wild, these trees prefer rich, well -drained soil and are often found at the bottom of rivers or streams.
It is not difficult to brew ink 호두코믹스, and drawing or writing with rich ink and a steel pen magically resembles autumn, regardless of the time of year.
The simplest recipes for walnut carcass are basic. Boil the purified husk of about eight walnuts in 1 liter of water in a large pan (cast iron will make the color darker until the liquid reaches the desired saturation. After that, let the liquid cool slightly and strain it several times through gauze.
The resulting liquid can be used as it is or add a little hummer Arabic. It is often recommended to add vinegar or alcohol so that the ink does not spoil.

One warning: in my experience, only time removes the spots of walnut ink, so use gloves and be careful, otherwise you will have to go to school, as my daughter did, with more than shiny mucus under the nails.
JAM 호두코믹스 yellowed insides of the Bill Fisher truck. The thing filled every free angle – tightly packed behind the wings, clamped between the motor compartments and deeply covered under the hood.
A resident of Fargo, North Dakota, returned. , from a four -day business trip at the beginning of this month and in anticipation of the opening. The walnut tree of his neighbor had just reached maturity, and the furry visitor could hide the treasures in the safe-Fisher van.
Since 2013, the 56-year-old Fisher has been faced with a strange phenomenon every two years-a tree maturation cycle-and the red-haired squirrel chose the Chevrolet Avalanche Fisher as her den.
“I have other cars very close to this tree, and this is always my truck,” Fisher said in an interview with The Washington Post. “I deliberately parked the car on the street – as far as possible from the walnut tree – but they still went, found an“ avalanche ”and hid them there.”
But this year, according to him, everything was different. Squirrel set a record: she filled the Fisher Fisher 42 gallons of the 호두코믹스.
The British study of the food habits of red protein, conducted in 2000, showed that they often dig pine cones, peanuts, acorns and hazelnuts, and also hide fruits, mushrooms and bones in high places. The study conducted in 2017 by scientists from the University of California in Berkeley showed that proteins are “scattered drives”, that is, they separate and hide each type of food in different places, preparing for the colder months, when there are fewer reserves.
According to the 2017 study, 호두코믹스 try to retrieve scattered food from caches to minimize losses from theft at stores.
The red-haired squirrel, who was wandering near Fisher Park, encountered a formidable foe – a human thief that it could not outsmart.
Fisher had grown accustomed to the inconvenience that occurred every two years. He was aware that when nuts began falling to the ground, it was necessary to check the engine before starting the car. He believed that the squirrel chose his truck because it was easily accessible. According to Fisher, the squirrel entered through the back of the truck, moved through the interior spaces, and reached the engine section. Moreover, there was ample space under the hood.
Through his experience, he learned that it was more effective to wait until there were no nuts under the tree before beginning to clean.
Fisher recounted how the squirrel would sit on a tree and observe him as he cleaned the nuts, almost as if it was saying, “This is mine, my friend,” while watching him store its winter reserve. However, this year, before leaving on a trip a few weeks ago, Fisher removed several nuts from his truck. When he returned on September 17, he found thousands of husks in the car, which was more than he had ever seen before.
“Squirrel set a record,” Fisher said. “The maximum that I have ever dragged was four or five six-lung buckets. This year there were seven.”
Only from the hood did he extract five buckets. Behind the wings there were enough nuts to fill out two more buckets. Fisher said that he had to remove the wings from the truck to extract nuts.
As in past years, Fisher gives out walnuts for free on his Facebook page. Those who were not taken, he said, will be thrown out “to the annoyance of the squirrels.”
No matter how frightening the cleaning is, he cannot help but see humor in all this.
“When the wings are removed all the time, what can you do, except to laugh? Life is too short to laugh at it.”
And he is not to blame for the fact that the furry uninvited guest stole his nutritious treasures.
“If I do this, time has passed,” he said, “I have to return the wings to my mini.”
