Use Your Knees, Hercules

The chestnuts are dropping and we enjoy hearing the plop-plop of them hitting the ground. You can really mess up your back picking them up and you better put an elbow on one knee as you reach down. Gloves are a must for pulling them out of the burs. We use our toes to open the burs, but you still have to reach in past the spines. You can see Jack in the background chawing down on the nuts that fell on his side of the fence. I don't know how he does it, but he gets them out of the burs and fattens up on them every fall.

A Triple!

Everybody gets into picking up chestnuts; it's hard to resist.
