Nuts & Berries

This is what the some of the nut trees look like in the winter! More pictures will be posted later of the chestnuts, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries!

Two years ago, I gathered 200 pounds of black walnuts without even hardly trying. An Amish man in a neighboring county processed them for me and I got a nice bounty of black walnuts to sell and put in the freezer! I have hazelnuts coming for spring planting!

In 2010, for some reason, I had hardly a walnut. Hickories were extremely abundant, though. There are still enough on the ground that the deer come almost daily to paw them up from under the snow.
