Walnut Growing in Oregon by Jacob Calvin Cooper (1845 - 1937).

Although published to promote the business of walnut production, this short volume describes the current science and practice of growing walnuts in the early twentieth century with particular reference to the state of Oregon. ( Larry Wilson)
• This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://archive.org/details/walnut_growing_2006_librivox
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/20202
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Although this is a little offbeat, it is still interesting, and the Gutenberg project number is a palindrome of the year 2020 when Gutenberg is celebrating 20 years. This is project 20202 :D

Well this is something a little different! I’d like to claim History in Brief and Pollination.

Hi Larry,
I am putting in a few walnut trees this year; believe it or not.

Never heard that river sand/silt is a great growing medium. I'll have to read more about that! :hmm:

Good to hear!

I hesitated about putting this one up because of a seemingly narrow interest, so I'm glad you are enjoying it. :thumbs:
