    Doesn’t work that way. Most of them sprout the next spring and most that don’t aren’t edible either.

    Too close together. Also, never plant near the drain field….

    No, you just craft the skeleton archer bone drops into bonemeal and they grow instantly….oh God, I’m playing too much Minecraft, aren’t I?

    “…your great-great-grandchildren…” – when are fruits due the first time with Oaks after planting them? Do 5 years suffice?

    Squirrels never find them anyway.

    There are some burr oaks planted as boulevard trees near my place. One year I collected a bunch out of curiousity and soaked the tannin out of them over 5 or 6 days, changing the water every day. Then I removed the outer skin and ground them up in the food processor to make a coarse meal, which I added to a batch of muffins.

    It was a lot of work and didn’t taste like much, but it was an interesting exercise in urban foraging.

    Makes me wonder – how many acorns buried by squirrels actually become trees? (We now return you to silly and whimsical comments).

    Looks like my yard. I have so many baby oaks sprouting up. I pull most, but some I replant or give away.

    I always had lots of maples growing in my yard. I just mowed as usual, and after about 3 mowing s, they gave up.
