Wet Walnuts

Southampton Storm Warning
The day after our assault on the Hedge End apples, the weather took a turn for the worse. Storms were forecast for a few days, with plenty of wind and rain in the mix.
We knew that the walnuts were ripening. So, we thought that the elements would lend a helping hand.
During a break in the rain my son and I whisked off to check out the situation amongst the local trees.
We returned with a bucket load of wet walnuts and once the fall has started, it always continues apace; so now is the time to get busy gathering them as they drop.
Do remember that the green hulls will dye your fingers and clothes brown if you do not take precautions…
