Look at these acorns. They look pretty innocent, don't they? They're not! The acorns on our oak trees have been ganging up on us!
We have 11 oak trees in our front yard, so we often have quite a few acorns in the yard. This year is unlike any other though. They've been falling off the trees with such force that we hear them hitting the roof and rolling down when we're inside. Sometimes it sounds like someone is throwing rocks up there.
Not only are they noisy, they are plentiful. Last week Bob raked half the yard and got 3 wheelbarrows full of acorns. Sadly, the area he raked is full of acorns again.
This is what our yard looks like. You can't take a step without stepping on several acorns.
Have you ever seen this many acorns in one yard?
