Here's the size of an individual seed, surrounded by the meaty fruit of the plant (the actual seed is deep inside that pulpy exterior, and will sprout in the spring):
We dug down three or four inches in the dirt, dropped the seed in, and covered it back up with dirt and a little hay:
We're going to plant the rest throughout the property (about 200 trees in all), wait 30 or 40 years, and invite about 2,000 of you over to breathe in our new, black walnut-lined promenade leading to Better Farm.
Any local residents who would like free black walnut seeds can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a pick-up.
