Spoon in the Persimmons
My pond is flooded this week and the Persimmon tree near by it has a spoon in the seed of all the fruit when I split the seed in half. I think this symbol may mean I will be bailing water all winter instead of the snow the old timers referred to.
Old Timers say if persimmons have a spoon, fork, or knife it tells something of the winter to come. My persimmons this year all have a spoon which is supposed to signal a lot of snow. A knife means cold, cold that cuts like a knife and if they have a fork inside the winter will be mild. All the fruit has the same symbol each year. I am confused though and wonder it the spoon might be to bail water. As we had another flooding rain this week. What do you think?
