First like to tell how my dad would plant them , most where in the hills of Ky. Last year after Dad passed away I went to his back yard ,where he had a chestnut tree, to find it had been cut down by the power company. So i go to a larger food chain to pick some up. Had 3 employees helping me look for them, told them they would be with the other uncracked nuts. I walk over to where all 3 were standing , yep all three said guess we don't have any. A full tray of them under their nose, I said there they are, they pick up a bag and read the label..........guess none of the three had see a chestnut.... So me and my grandkids will be roasting chestnut this week..
