Nuts! I Love Em.

...Ah, Nuts!

Last year on our honeymoon we went to the Oregon wine country and rode horses through a winery. One winery was right next to a hazelnut farm, and we bought a bag of hazelnuts and fresh honey with some hot spices. It was awesome...

So I thought I'd plant a few hazelnut trees out on the ranch. I learned that you need two so they can cross pollinate.

Plus I've already got the bees - so this should be a no brainer.

I doubt I'll get any nuts this year. In fact I don't know how big the tree needs to be before it starts producing? Anyone know?

See you next time
