It is chestnut time here. When I was young I used to go and collect chestnuts with my grandma from the chestnut wood (actually about 6 trees or so, but things seem bigger when you are smaller). We would then roast them on the fire and eat them.
I still have the roasting pan.
So this weekend we collected and roasted chestnuts. But the main difference is that now we have lots of chestnut trees on the campsite/smallholding thanks to my grandparents planting them decades ago.
We collected chestnuts from these – and a few from the old chestnut wood for old time’s sake…..
