Late morning walnut hunting. The time is a little past for the early walnuts, but this tree started a bit slow this year.
I keep track of the edibles I see out on my rides, walnuts are one of my favorites, but will not be ready for another couple of months. Last year I had posted some pictures on flickr from a gathering expedition near the top of Sulphur Mtn., and there was a comment that I should look into making nocino. Having no idea what that was I resorted to google and found this nocino recipe. Now off to the store this afternoon to grab a few more ingredients.
This tree is a little easier access then the one on Sulphur mountain.
