Butternuts and Barreds

October 15, 2013

We are getting the last 75 holes ready for the filbert planting fandango this week and staking the last of the walnuts, butternuts and chestnuts that got missed in the first round of planting last year. We’re less than a month and a half away from our target date of all 250 nut trees in the ground by November 30th and we’re anxious, excited and slightly exhausted.

As soon as this stake was pounded into the ground for the young butternut tree, our resident barred owl decided to test out the perch potential. We told Agroforestry BC that one of our goals was to create habitat with this project – at least we’re right on track with that!
