Hazel catkins

hazel catkins Dec 16

We had a walk in the local woodland on Christmas Day and I discovered the hazel trees were covered in catkins. Hopefully there will be a good hazel nut crop next year. I have to confess we fowled up this autumn regarding hazel. The nuts are an important crop. They are full of protein and oils and are an important part of our diet. Or they would have been if we had gone out to gather them. Sadly we didn't. We must avoid that mistake in 2017.
