Yesterday I gathered some more Hickory nuts. It was rather warm ouside (55F) and with rain in the forecast, I needed to collect what I could before everything's to wet... Well, of course I left soem for the squirrels :)
One of the trees we have grows close to the road - that's the only one I use for my harvest. Everything else for the wildlife.
I love using them in salad (romain, spinach, cranberries, apples/pears, avocado, lemon juice and nuts) Yum!
