In my case, you are working with a woman who has just returned from 3 wonderful, cool, peaceful, calm months in the NC mountains--to the heat, humidity, dust, and traffic of the over-populated, tourist-swelled island I call home. I'm still trying to breathe this water-saturated air and walk on this ground that is so dry that I leave dust clouds as I tiptoe through the dead everything! As if that is not quite enough, I am relearning the skills of having a child (in this case my son's 10 year old daughter) living with us and attending school and registering for after-school activities, doing homework, etc. In this FL heat, it never enters my sweat-soaked brain that you have a TREE from which these GROW! Oh, lucky you! Like some other HOFs, I tend to believe animals instinctively KNOW what they should/should not consume. That being said, I, too, like Agnes, am cautious when introducing ANYTHING new. So, you are right to come to us with questions--we all do that--but please be patient until we get the answers. LOL!! My DH says that last winter on a NC trip, he picked up some black walnuts along with some other types of mountain-growing nuts for our zoo. They LOVED the huge acorns we found up there but did not really want the nuts with the thick coverings; this probably had more to do with the fact they are a bit SPOILED than the covering/husk being toxic! Hee, Hee! If you are seeing the gray squirrels taking them AND eating them, they are probably fine for your sweetkins!
