This picture was sent in recently from French Lick Resort Chef Robbie Bellew. It's a sliced open Persimmon Seed showing a spoon inside. So, what does that mean?
According to The Farmer's Almanac, a seed with a spoon means we'll be shoveling lots of snow.
If a knife shows up inside the persimmon, then a very cold, icy winter is on the way.
Conversly, if a fork appears, then a mild winter is expected.
The "spoon" seed was recently found in Medora, Indiana... get your snow shovels and plows ready!
