We're just past mid-September, and the Chestnut season is here again.
All the nets are now spread under the trees, ready to catch the nuts. and people everywhere are busy in their plantations.
The spikey husks are swelling beautifully, and it looks as if the farmers will have a good crop. They've had plenty of rain.
And here are some of the first nuts to fall, they will get bigger and better in a few days time. Billy isn't interested in Chestnuts. Monty made me peel them for him. He couldn't resist them; but Labradors can't resist many things.
