Gary, this resource says 1-2 inches: http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/trees-shrubs/growing-black-walnut/

They also have a nice illustration of a squirrel-protector device for the nut that's easily made from a soup can.

I've planted black walnuts just by laying some leaves on top of them and leaving the husk on. I think they really want to grow, as long as the mice and squirrels don't get them.
 
That's my roommate. He's kinda weird, but he always pays his half of the rent. And he gave me this tiny ad:
