Harvest in a nutshell


Friday 2nd November 2012
Today was a momentous one.
Two winters ago I planted fifty fruit trees, including five hazelnuts (filberts), a very expensive walnut tree and an almond. Nuts are wonderful, but expensive. They can completely change the character of a dish and are one of nature's real treats. The birds and animals know this too, but fortunately we do not, as yet, have any squirrels around here.
I was not expecting a decent harvest for a few years, but I have already had success. For today I took my first nut harvest. And here it is...
 


Yes, this one almond!
I'm waiting to find a really special use for it.
