Default 2023 Mast Crop

Seems to be a better than normal year for acorns, etc. I went for a walk today and started thinking I should have been wearing a hard hat. The chestnut oak acorns were falling like crazy. Almost all of the pin oaks and red oaks have good crops as well. My one and only surviving American chestnut also had a pretty good crop of nuts. The are also lots of wild cherries this year. In some places the ground is nearly black with cherries. I've also found a few beachnuts and hickory nuts and two of the apples trees in my orchard are loaded.

On the downside I had only one pear and a handful of peaches and there doesn't seem to be any wild grapes.

Here's a photo of some of the chestnut oak acorns I picked up today as well as two bags of real chestnuts.

WOW! I would love to have a few chestnuts to try and grow. There’s very few chestnut trees left now..
