Her in Yorkshire we have the most prolific edible chestnuts crop. It is like a blanket on the ground. I spoke to an old boy picking them too, he said he as been doing it every year and this is the best ever.
We also seem to have more fungi than I remember from previous years. I find them so interesting.

I’ve seen some lovely fungi too but no chestnuts. You’ve reminded me how we used to roast them on the fire with my grandmother when we were kids. Never much liked the taste though! The trees have turned beautiful autumnal colours and many still hanging on to the leaves. As we’ve had so little rain, they are crispy to walk through. Love that! I’ve picked cooking apples from the garden. Given a lot away but now need to stew and freeze mine. We’ve bought pumpkins and put them at our gates like they do in the US. Got 2 on either side. They cost me £7 which I thought was a good deal. Sainsbury’s are charging £3 for each!
I love chestnuts, we have a metal plate that we put on top of the stove in the lounge. Lovely smell. We went to pick our pumpkins from a local farm. They have rows of ready picked pumpkins, you choose your own shape and size. Blumin' cold.
