Additionally, the school book fair is this week and the girls wanted extra money to buy books. So, I challenged them last week to begin picking up walnuts. The trailer was full today, so we took them to the huller. Side note: The majority of black walnuts sold in the united states come from Missouri! And for all their hard work...they got $27.72! Of course they had divide it among their friends who helped them out this past week, but they still ended up with $8/each. So, they are filling the trailer again! :) The walnuts have to be picked up anyways, and the neighbors appreciate the help, and they are outside enjoying the fall weather! It's a great thing! I guess money really does grow on trees!
Update: 10.7.11 - Sold another load for $31.20!!
