I have two questions for you today:
1. Did you ever try chestnuts?
You read my two questions and now I would like to let you know, that if you ever try to get your own chestnuts for eating, be very careful what you chose.
The ones pictured at the end of my post are poisonous and they are called Horse chestnuts. My partner always like to try new things, so one day while on our walk he gathered some lovely looking chestnuts and decided to roast them. I am not the one for trying new things so I said I won't be eating it. I don't think he actually ate many of them either. But after a day or two he got a very bad rush on his arms and hands and wondered why. I think only after a week or so I decided to check some info about chestnuts and the wonderful Internet provided me with some knowledge. The chestnuts that he ate were poisonous, so I am so grateful that apart from the rush there was no other bad consequences.
Now for some good news, we collected that day as well some Edible Sweet Chestnuts, at first when I took that photo ( the one below) I had no clue what it is but again the Internet is great for information you need. The pod of the edible sweet chestnut has a sort of porky-pine look to it with thin needle like spikes that point out in all directions and form a sort of thicket where you cannot see anything but the spikes. These are green while the chestnuts are forming and then turn brown when the chestnuts are mature
