Chestnuts around sheffield

Recommended Posts

A little tip for those, like me, who are arachnephobic.

Spiders HATE chestnuts.

One or two placed in the corners of the room and you shouldn't see them for dust.

:gag:

It sounds to me like you need to do a bit of hoovering!

No point telling me ... tell my girlfriend! I've already got one ... she lost hers through a faulty coat pocket.

I've already drilled a hole in mine, just waiting ... :P

 

I'll tell her next time I see her.Until then,have you thought of just hitting her with your conker when she's not looking to teach her to be more careful.Or buy her a new coat,yer tight get!

I'm not buying her a new coat just for the safe transportation of a conker! :o

Mind you, she's gonna have to buy a new shoelace for her walking boots ... one's 'mysteriously' gone missing. :huh:

Eccy woods but it looks like a poor harvest this year, have been out foraging and they are so small not worth bothering with.

Ha! ... tried looking round Chatsworth last weekend ... zilch! :)

Think the kids have snaffled them all as you mention. It's also very easy to tell the difference between sweet and horse chestnut from further away, just by the shape of the leaves. :thumbsup:

The conkers fall from the tree on their own when they are ripe.The ones knocked down by sticks are watter bellies and no good for conkers.
