…looks like your bumper crop might be a rarity this year. Anyone noticing a dearth of acorns as described in this WaPo article?
“I’m used to seeing so many acorns around and out in the field, it’s something I just didn’t believe,” he said. “But this is not just not a good year for oaks. It’s a zero year. There’s zero production. I’ve never seen anything like this before.”
Sounds like it might be a good year for my East Coast bird-loving friends to put out some nuts for the squirrels, too.
