Chestnuts from Jello Mold Farm

Chestnuts from Jello Mold Farm

What a funny mix of textures there are in each chestnut seed case.  Those prickly-as-a-hedgehog seed cases protect a nut that is as smooth as marble.  I love the feel of chestnut conkers in my hands.  Jello Mold Farm has several rows of chestnut trees separating their flower beds, and I was so taken with photographing them, I thought they deserved their own post.

    Before the Chestnut Blight wiped out our town’s Chestnuts, I, as a child, looked forward to this time when the chestnuts would fill our pockets and we would hold them and rub them forever, saving the biggest and best.

    Is there an open fire around? I could be persuaded toward an early chestnut roast! The photos are wonderful. I had a chestnut once, and it was such fun to carry around.
