22nd of October

This years haul of wild hazelnuts. Nuts are not grown commercially up here in Scotland but you can find some with decent ones growing wild or in planted mixed woodland. They are smaller than the shop bought ones but have a lovely sweet flavour. I have found several good trees along local rivers whilst out fishing. I have always enjoyed gathering wild food as the only things that I’ve been able to grow well in the garden are brambles!
