2014-2015 Walnut crop

IMG_0515

Nuts are setting on the trees. The miracle has been taking place over the last few weeks. After months of branches of barren sticks, the greenery is welcome and reassuring. Through November and December the nuts increase in size, the leaves multiply and the branches appear on which next year’s growth will develop.

January and February may bring unwelcome heatwaves that burn the nuts. Let’s hope not. All we can do is encourage leaf growth to provide shade for the crop by watering and fertigating.

I hope the nuts will look like this right up to harvest in April.
