Folklore of the persimmon
Over the weekend my husband opened up about 10 persimmons and they all had a spoon in them.
In the one picture we have the spoon raised up alittle.
So they say:
spoon shaped means lots of heavy wet snow forecasted
fork shaped powdery light snow and a mild winter predicted
knife shaped bitter icy cutting winds for next few months will occur
So Southern Illinois should see snow. Last year there was a fork in the seed and we had a super nice winter---but paid for it with the drought and hot summer. I don't mind alittle snow, especially if it comes on a week-end when I am off!
