I'm a seed nut. If I find acorns in the woods I plant them. Any seed I find goes in the ground. This past fall I was at the supermarket and saw they had chestnuts for roasting for sale. Well I bought a half a pound for about $1.75. I took them home and through them in my beer frig for the winter ( stratify). I planted them in pots (yea I drank them empty) around the first of March and now I have about a dozen chestnut trees going.
My Osage orange seeds are coming up also.

cool, but better watch where you plant them/leave em be
a rabbit or deer will suck them up like candy LOL

but that's a cool way to go about making things grow!

any clue as to what type of chestnut tree??

Good stuff! Thanks for sharing the pics. I'm anxious to see how they progress as the weather warms up.

Not sure of the type. I set a tray out 2 days ago with a couple that hadn't sprouted yet. Looked out the window and a darn grey squirrel was carrying one of my chestnuts back into the wood.

Don't put stuff out without good protection. I lost some chestnut seedlings last year even when I removed the nuts before setting outside. Metal mesh cage required.
