Wednesday Wives Tales~Persimmon Seeds

I finally got around to going out to scrounge for some persimmons. I think the 'possums must have eaten all of ours. Or the dogs. It's always a contest to see who or what creature can get there first. I went out early this morning in the rain and found~ONE persimmon.

If you cut open your persimmon seeds and see the shape of a fork, then you will have a nice, easy winter. A spoon and there will be lots of snow to shovel. A knife~cutting cold.

Our neighbors have reported spoons in their persimmon seeds and that is what we are calling the shape we found in ours. They are not as defined as usual, but there is definitely the little 'cup' part of a spoon. So, lots of snow for us! We had spoons in them last year and there was plenty of snow.
Have you seen any 'signs' about the coming winter?
