More harsh winter weather folklore: the Persimmon Seed!

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!
