In the garden: Happy filbert!
This filbert tree is in my raspberry patch, which for reasons unknown to me, has ended up with spectacular soil. It's now taller than I am!
Basically, I'm just happy to have the tree; if I actually get filberts that will be a bonus. I think the trick, with nut trees, is making sure squirrels don't successfully compete for the nuts. I remember reading somewhere (possibly here) that this is the trick to use: Get a plastic pipe, seal one end, and bury it in the ground near the tree with the open end up. Then the squirrels will hide their nuts in the pipe, and you can collect them!
This is posssibly apocryphal; I can't imagine a big nut farm -- make up your own jokes, here -- protects its trees that way.
