Chestnuts in Michigan

https://1tess.wordpress.comI’ve never seen a chestnut tree!
Nearly all of the American chestnut trees were killed by a blight (fungus) in the early 1900’s. l was surprised to learn that chestnut trees grow in Michigan. The nearest orchard is in Livingston County with 350 trees on nearly 70 acres. Last Saturday was a warm blue sky bright sun autumn day with trees bright reds and yellows. It was perfect for a drive in the country. And yes, it was beautiful! But growing chestnuts in Michigan is not easy. And I found out that chestnuts are sharp and dangerous!
