    @Ian, thanks Ian, it was quite nice to be there in ‘bad’ weather… Guess many people miss shots because they are sun-shooters, but there is no escaping on a bike :)

Hazelnut trees in fall in Oregon

The story behind "Hazelnut trees in fall in Oregon"

It is the time of the year where leaves fall off the trees. That is, of course, if you live in a temperate zone on the Northern half of our planet, as in Australia and Patagonia, everything is just greening up again. and in the tropics, well, things just work different in all aspects of life :)

I found these hazelnut trees (actually they are called hazels and their nuts are hazelnuts) while cycling through Oregon. Even though they are unnaturally planted in rows and loosing their leaves, it still makes me happy to see so many trees together. And of course the hazelnuts that are grown here are delicious and healthy, with protein and unsaturated fat as well as vitamins and minerals. And no, I don’t do sponsored posts, I just really like real food :)

There are a lot of hazelnut trees in the USA state of Oregon, it is even the ‘official state nut’, (which would be the best job title, ever!). Not strange, as Oregon produces about 99% of all hazelnuts in the USA. Still Turkey is the world’s largest producer.
