Hazelnuts from the garden


For years the hazel tree in the front garden has produced nuts, but, disappointingly, when broken open, there was nothing inside. I don't know whether the tree is now sufficiently mature or whether it was due to a decent summer, but this year there were lots of edible nuts! They are rather small, but definitely taste of hazelnut.

Overall it's been an excellent year for the garden, especially considering how little I do in there!
