The first walnuts are starting to fall.  They are very bitter until they've had a chance to dry out a little but if you have time on your hands you can peel away the papery skin and then the fresh nuts have a delicious milky flavour.  A friend remembers her father burying fresh walnuts in a sack in order to have them at Christmas.

We had such a good harvest last year that we haven't quite run out yet - an excellent state of affairs!
