Don’t you just love Autumn? It’s so exciting because of all the things that drop off trees…. especially conkers!
This is my Kinga. I’ve soaked it in vinegar so its very tough and put a real shoe lace through it. Its BRILLIANT.
I went round the park, round the back, and ferrtled amongst the fallen leaves under the big conker tree, and there it was, woo hoo.
I have to admit to being a bit confused between conkers and horse chestnuts. I think you can eat one and the other is deadly poisonous , but I don’t know which, so I am not going to eat either of them.
In answer to Sarah's question in comments
A kinga is a winning conker, call it a oner, sixer, tenner etc = number of other conkers beaten.
