Awhile back I posted about having a chestnut tree. I was very perplexed about how one is to get the nut out of its shell...until today. For some reason, they all started opening up today! Its one of the oddest things I have ever seen. I will try to let the pictures do the explaining.
When I found out that it was a chestnut tree, I came up with a grand plan to harvest them and roast them over a fire, just like the song. However, I think I have some competition. The squirrels are all over these things! And let me tell you, these guys are fast! So, don't be calling me when your wanting your roasted over the fire chestnuts!
