More Gleaning

We took a family bike ride on Sunday, a beautiful sunny day, bracketed by rain and drizzle. One of the local running trails goes through an old filbert orchard, and the ground is just covered with fallen hazelnuts. We picked up pounds and pounds of them. Now I just need to get a good nutcracker and we can spend winter nights by the fire cracking open some gorgeous Oregon hazelnuts.

Hi, I found you through the blogring. Wow! We get some wild hazelnuts up here, but I've never seen an orchard of domesticated ones. That's quite a find!
