We planted four hazelbert trees (a hybrid between hazelnuts and filberts) in the backyard of the Maple Corner Community Center. We had to plant at least two because they cross pollinate. We planted them in pairs.
In two to four years, these trees will begin to yield nutritious, tasty nuts. As Angelheart said in a blessing of the trees, "Let's grow enough to make Nutella!"
It was a very festive community event, with participants ranging from not quite 3 years old to 69 years old. We had wine, beer, sparkling water, and snacks afterwards.
There were also kudos all the way around.
And the weather cooperated too! All around, a special afternoon.
