The cobnut trees which I planted last winter have managed to survive my initial tender care. Indeed they are now displaying their catkins. With a bit of luck, a fair wind and a few bees I will hopefully have some nuts to pick come October. I know that it will be a few years before I have a big enough crop to worry about storage but I am looking forward to that time. It will be another tick on the self sufficiency check list. I have planted four trees and once they get into full production I should have more than sufficent cobnuts.
Oh that I could grow peanuts!
