Meet Ingrid one of our new Almond trees.
We have two 'Ingrids' in total and joining them at the far corner of the paddock are two Sweet Chestnuts called 'Maron de Lyon' and four Walnut trees, two are 'Fernors' and two are 'Fernettes'.
So those of you who guess trees were in our strange looking parcels were correct.
The huge messy heap is all the nettle roots that we dug out of this area before the trees went in, I'm sure we missed lots of them but we got out as many as we could.
Hopefully in the next few years we will have a good selection of nuts to join the fruits and vegetables that we will be growing, and to compliment Cob nuts, which are a type of Hazelnut, that we already have growing in the hedgerows on our land.
One step closer to our little bit of self sufficiency :-)
