Pine Cone Pile!

Oh man.

So, our house is surrounded by these very beautiful, tall majestic pine trees.

As pretty as they are, they do have a downside.

The milder weather this week really encouraged me to get out and try my hand at yard work. But the amount of pine cones that I have to clean from the yard is just overwhelming and kind of unmanageable.

If I don't rake them up, the lawn is totally going to die. Pine is so acidic that it just smothers grass and kills it. Plus, the crunching of massive pine cones underfoot doesn't really encourage barefoot summer Frisbee games.

How am I gonna get rid of them? Bird feeders are a good beginning, I suppose.

Peanut Butter, Sunflower Seeds and Pine cones. You're welcome, birds.
