Well it's been a very long time since I last blogged. A little harder to keep up with this when I no longer have a garden. I've been doing a lot of hiking and camping in the last 6 months. Perhaps more on that later. But since it's Fall and Thanksgiving is approaching I thought I'd post about my current attempt to eat acorns for the first time.
I attempted to harvest some last year, but got to it too late and basically got a small amount of wormy acorns. Not fun. This year I was a lot luckier. I was able to collect acorns from both the California Black Oak (Quercus keloggii) and the Valley Oak (Quercus lobata). *The common names are often used in other regions to refer to different oaks* As you can see from the picture the acorns look very different.
