Loam, I have never eaten chestnuts; of course, I heard of roasting them over a fire. I see them in grocery stores now and then. How do you roast them? What is the process to get to the meat?

I use this on my computer as well as my phone. It has hourly, daily, weekly, & monthly.

Scroll down for the different apps.

Be careful of your back, Daniel. They don't forgive easily.

Hope your back improves soon, Daniel. Fortunately, I haven't had back problems in a long time. I think it's due to all the walking I do.

Of the trees I've recently planted, almost half don't look like they'll make it. Three of them--a pear, peach, and pecan--have all but died. My only hope is sprouts at the base, probably "suckers" that won't produce fruit.

In the garden, my kale and collards have been taken over by hungry caterpillars. I keep picking them off, but to no avail. Grrrr. At least my chard stays worm free.

Daniel, your chestnuts look exactly like buckeyes. I think I mentioned that we planted some chestnut trees on the farm. Can't recall ever eating one.

Can't recall, either, how long it took before my persimmon trees produced fruit. Nate took some to market, but they didn't sell. I won't force them on him anymore.

I've only ate chestnuts one time.  I bought some from the store and tried them raw.  Didn't taste good.  Roasted them.  Didn't taste good.  Put them in the compost pile.

Daniel, WOW! Those are big persimmons! Mine are small because there's so many. I need a male tree. In fact, I have 4 males, 2 females. When I started them from seed, I didn't know what sex they were.

My sweet potato yield wasn't great, but good enough. I like the size of the potatoes--no "monsters".

Ours is done, Daniel. Tomatoes were last & they had to be brought in before frost.

Comment by Randall Smith on October 9, 2018 at 6:54am

Daniel, I hope your pawpaws taste better than our "Indiana bananas". I'll stick to my persimmons.

Dug up about half my sweet potatoes yesterday. Surprisingly, they are mostly round, not oblong. And no voles this year. A predicted weekend frost is forcing me to dig earlier than I want.

I envy you who can leave your plants outside all winter. I love begonias and dahlias; Cary and I dug them every autumn and stored them in the basement. Replanting them every spring was a big job, especially in my food forest. The end came when Cary died and I could not do the work myself. 

Bertold and Daniel, how happy your photos of dahlias, crocosmia, and begonias make me feel.
