What did you eat today - that you grew?

My daughter texted me this picture, she said her roommate loves this melon. Nice texture and not too sweet.

I think the two hidden ones look the most tempting.

Visited my raspberry patch this morning for a nice breakfast treat.

My daughter gave her employee this melon, he said it’s nice. I’m happy, free stuff from my compost can be pretty good.

OK, so technically I did not eat these today. But soon.

These are Chinese chestnuts from a Qing seedling. It was planted in 2015. This is the second year with a good crop.

Interestingly, I have two trees that behave differently. One tree blooms and ripens ahead of the other. I was worried but apparently the overlap is sufficient for pollination. All of these nuts are from the more advanced tree. There’s a good crop on the other tree but it doesn’t seem quite ready yet. Also the husks on the other tree seem smaller in general so I’m expecting fewer nuts.

p.s. I’m sufficiently OCD to count the nuts. There are 285 from the one tree. I think that last year I got ~150 total from both trees, the first year with a good crop.

Still getting some tomatoes… big beef and super sweet 100. The big beef are not so big now … the plants are near 9 ft long now (trained to 2 stems) but still producing and still very good tomatoes.

We have two chestnut trees too, and same as yours one would drop nuts earlier than the other. The trees were about 6-7 ft when we moved into our house 20 years ago. We get tons of nut every year
