Hazelnut harvest 2009
What went wrong, you ask? Silly me, I decided to leave the pretty husks up on the shrubs to dry a bit more. The weather was fine and warm, not the usual rainy October so, I thought it would be good for them to stay where they were. That was a great idea but not for me. The deer, however, they thought it perfect since they missed out on last year's bumper crop. They left not one tiny husk on the shrubs. I had to scour the ground for the two bitty ones I found. I was not happy. Live and learn.
