Rarely get a nut left for us, Keen. They only need processing if you pick them green for pickled walnuts. Otherwise, for us, they need ripening. Squirrels don't seem to care about ripening. They are mature though when the squirrels bury them, they germinate. Maybe I should take my chance and pick some as the squirrels start next year. Ditto the hazle nuts.
tbh, there aren't enough yet to make much of a harvest, I may put more effort into it in the future.
