I'm an avid greenthumb and fallout fan. When I heard the locals tell me about pinyon nuts, I did a double take. I didn't know they were a real thing.
So, I started looking up all of the plants from New Vegas and found out most of them are real. So. I've decided to grow every one of them at my new house with the exception of pinyon pine and honey mesquite trees. Banana yucca, coyote tobacco, buffalo gourd, Nevada (Utah) agave, barrel cactus, prickly pear (already growing at the house), and white horsenettle all grow out here.
Note, I am not going to try to actually recreate any of.the recipes, but I will be gathering pinyon nuts this fall.
Just thought I'd share.
