The Chestnuts are Planted!

All 50 Chinese chestnuts (Castanea mollissima) are in the ground as of this week, bringing our total to 175 trees planted in the last year! We have 75 hazelnuts left to plant in May and then the planting shovel will take a well deserved break.

I wish I could have a toast with a tulip goblet filled with sparkling wine to celebrate our accomplishments thus far. A glass will have to do. That old hayfield is starting to transform into a nut orchard. Our site plan is materializing before our eyes!
