Chestnut gathering 栗拾い

I went to collect chestnuts with my son yesterday.


Many of our neighbors have chestnut trees. One of them told our son that he can have all the chestnuts he can find under the neighbor’s tree.


You shouldn’t touch the chestnut burr for the obvious reason, so…


Use your feet to open the chestnut burr.


We went to the garden for a little bit and picked hot peppers and eggplants. We got the figs from our neighbor. (Many of our neighbors also have fig trees but they don’t pick and eat very much. Most of our neighbors are in their 80s and 90s.)


This is what it looks like inside Dave’s workshop. We will be adding some woodwork items in our online shop soon!
