Summer Solstice roughly marks the time when the green walnuts are ready to be picked, cut and put into brine. Spent the day yesterday trimming off ends and dropping into brine - in between putting ourselves into the brine at Gnarabup to cool down - temp in high 30s! Halfway through & still cutting ...thank goodness it's cooler today. Love that smell of greeen walnuts!
