The hazelnut that I’ve been photographing all summer is almost ripe:
We’ve found 44 hazelnuts so far — they’re sitting out to dry. There were two really green nuts that fell — I kept those too, just to see if they’d finish ripening inside. So far, they’re browning up surprisingly well
And all of the hazelnut bushes are getting ready for next year — hopefully we’ll get loads of nuts!
Anya and I harvested a lot of corn today — 54 cobs are in the freezer, and a few didn’t make it up the hill!
Packaged up and ready for the freezer:
We found fourteen hazelnuts around the bushes today — and still some on the plants. There were more hazelnuts hiding under leaves than we thought.
Today, we harvested some tomatoes; Anya made a “tomato bowl” with the larger tomatoes to hold the smaller tomatoes
Plus corn and pumpkins!
Some of our pumpkins are starting to turn orange
And we harvested our first eleven ears of corn. A few weren’t fully developed (small kernels), but some were beautiful, plump yellow kernels. Very sweet and tasty — especially since we ate it within hours of harvesting it.
We’ve got tassels all over now — silks on corn, cobs forming. This is the Damaun SH2 sweet corn we’ve planted for the first time this year.
The pumpkins are starting to look like … pumpkins!
The corn is starting to form tassels!
