The nuts are falling and I am harvesting—along with the red squirrels and chipmunks.
It’s a fairly good year for the English Chestnuts. I will be drying/shelling some of them today.
My little hazelnut tree that produced a crop for the first time last year gave me 2 cups of nuts this year (about 5/8th of a pound). (Last year I measured it by weight and got 1/4 lb)
I have a second young tree that gave me four clusters of nuts. Next year, I’m expecting the 1/4 lb harvest.
