We collected acorns in October.
…and then these – about 300 acorns in total. Some of the acorns were already sprouting, lovely. 🙂 We collected them from the ground, under big oak trees, here in our home village.
The first two pictures I took in October, the rest of the pictures in this blog post I took today.
So, we planted the acorns in our garden, here…
And we also collected some acorns for the land that my boyfriend now has in the region of Etelä-Pohjanmaa – South Ostrobothnia, about 180 kilometres north from our home, that is to say, we already planted the acorns there, into the forest ground. There’s a certain spot or place, an island actually, where broad-leaved trees are growing in the forest, but there are no oak trees, not yet…
So, this is all an experiment, with these acorns, just nice and interesting.
I collected spruce cones, too. These were on the ground in our yard, on the driveway. We don’t have big spruce trees, but there are spruces just outside our yard. I started to collect these just because I think that they are lovely, but my boyfriend said that we could try to get seeds from these as well. Well, that’s a good idea, an interesting experiment, too. The cones have been drying inside the house now.
And I was shoveling compost, emptying a compost bin a bit today. We have this year-round composter for kitchen (and garden) waste.
We shovel the compost into this container, where the process continues, and in the end, it all goes back to nature again. 🙂
