Acorns As Compost?
There are 9 large old oak trees around my place, and around this time of year the acorns fall like rain. If I hadn't had a tree service trim the limbs above my house last year, the constant rainlike racket on my roof and the filling of my rain gutters would have driven my insane by now.
When I walk barefoot under the trees, I can feel nothing but acorns. The squirrels, woodpeckers, and flocks of grackles are trying to keep up, but they're hardly making a dent.
A strange thought just occurred to me. I could easily scoop up several wheelbarrows full of acorns and deposit them into the compost pile. If I did, would they turn into something useful?
Seems like an organic resource worth exploiting.
