Truffle hunting and tree pruning

Pruned hazelnut treesJust over half of the first truffiere planting has now been pruned. Its a really big undertaking specially out in the cold winter days.

Lots more to do as today because Fahren, our oldest truffle dog, wanted my undivided attention I only managed to finish half a row. We are now both back inside and she is now curled up in my lounge chair in front of a warm fire.

Tawdiffu found something in the bag!

We have now left the the truffiere and as I put down the bag to close the gate Tawdiffu checks out the bags letting me know that there is more truffle to be found and not under a tree.
