Yesterday Joel went down to his Mom's house and harvested her hazelnuts. Here they are drying by the stove. She has a beautiful mature tree that produces lots of nuts every year. She also has an English walnut tree. Almost our nuts for cookies and such come from these two trees. One of our favorite things to do with hazelnuts is to roast them and put them on salads.
We have a few small hazelnut trees that produced a few nuts this year. We have great hopes for them in the future.
