Sharing His Pride


Taking me by the hand, the Pres said, "Hon, want to see my nuts?"

LOL!!  Go ahead...I did...:)

Almost pulling me at me like an impatient child, he escorted me outside and around to the side of the house.

"See, there's two on this bush and four on that one.  Let's hope the squirrels don't get them before they ripen."



Standing there listening to him, I took a few pix because I have never seen such cute....

"nuts."  

Although we cannot understand why the largest Hazelnut has absolutely no nuts on it and the smaller ones do.

Any nut growers out there?

Feedback is always appreciated at this household...especially when it comes to nut trees!

Could it be something to do with pollination, or perhaps lack of it, with the larger tree. I know nothing about hazel nuts so can't help you but was delighted to see those tiny nuts the Pres is so proud of.

Maybe they have male and female trees? That is the case with our holly bushes.

One of the best crops of hazelnuts I ever found was in a hedge alongside a massive electricity substation. (Not sure if you have them over there but they occur around our cities to redirect power where it's needed.) The place was a good couple of degrees warmer than the surroundings. So I suspect it's temperature. Is the smaller tree more sheltered?

i live with a man and two dogs that are all three 'nuts' does that count? have never seen hazel nuts growing or even a tree.. cool beans.. I miss my daddy's pecan trees, we had three and i did love eating them but not the picking them up or shelling

Linda said...

No help from me. We have baby pecan trees on our property. And at our age we will never see them mature. Hazelnuts? I love Nutella! Have had that on my pantry shelves for 35 years! Hugs, Linda@Wetcreek Blog

We have black walnut trees by the house and a whole lot of nut trees in our bush but I know nothing about them but the squirrels do ask them:0 Hug B

My guess is lack of pollination. See this website.

Exciting to see your husband's secret nuts. LOL You baited my comment JP, couldn't help myself!

Ann said...

Yep, you made me laugh :)
I don't know a thing about nut trees though. On the other hand I do know lots of people who are nuts

Carver said...

I hope you do get some that ripen. I have a large pecan tree and there are enough pecans that I share with the squirrels.

Ginny said...

I really admire people who can grow these. AND nuts cost quite a bit in the stores.

Betty said...

I didn't even know that hazelnuts grew on bushes. I had a pecan tree at my old house and we'd have a couple of years with lots of pecans and then there would be a year of next to none. I don't know why. Since we didn't spray the tree we let the squirrels have them. In the fall they'd be running all over the place. Our neighborhood had been a pecan grove at one time, so there were quite a few pecan trees still left. I miss my pecan tree.

You grow your own hazelnuts - that's great!

Rambling Woods said...

LOL... Cute.... I don't know anything about tree nuts except that squirrels love them. But how wonderful to live in an area where you can grow them... Here's hoping the squirrels don't find them and they get to ripen... Michelle
