Not many people have heard of chinquapins, but my brother and I love them. They are a very small chestnut type nut. They look like an acorn, but grow inside a burr. When that burr opens up, it is east to get the nuts out, but not before then. My brother called today and said the chinquapins were ready and he was going to the trees to mow under them and knock some out on the ground. I ate so many of them that my stomach still doesn't feel good. In the picture, it's the little brown acorn looking nut that falls on the ground. It's a sure sign of fall although the temp doesn't reflect that autumn is here!
