Franquette walnut tree


Franquette walnut tree. Planted spring 2010. 
Here we have a very sad looking walnut tree. I have hardly taken care of it and its gotten very little water. My mother warned me early in the season that walnut trees and their leaves are toxic to plants. I dug a little further and found out that it isn't all plants that are susceptible. But, since solanums are on the susceptible list, I dug the tree up and moved it to the farthest corner, and will be conscious of what gets planted near there. That is, if this tree survives!
