Uncle John's Black Walnuts

John H. Hoke

My Uncle John passed away last month at the age of 92.  He led an amazingly fruitful and productive life and reminded me so much of my father, both in looks as well as in approach to life.

After he passed away, his children divvy-ed up his black walnut stash in the freezer.  My cousin Jeff was kind enough to mail me a box crammed full of the little ziplock bags he stored them in.

It's so bittersweet knowing that this is the last of the black walnuts from Uncle John....

Charleston, SC

It was a perfect day for a visit with my nephew Sean and a ferry ride out to Fort Sumpter.

We ended the day with some fried pig skins and some Southern BBQ at an outdoor restaurant - aaahhhh....
