Hazel nuts are falling again, they are left out to dry for as long as possible in the sun before being transferred to the loft to continue their drying until at least April. Hopefully there will be enough to this year to take to the press to produce some oil. The nuts have to be picked up every day which gets a bit tiresome, so I am hoping on a big storm to bring them all down at once. Possibly the end of this week.
