Anyone who has acorns in their yard probably cringes at the sound of them. Acorns are dangerous when it comes to walking in your yard because they roll and can cause you to lose your balance. There are many statistics that have shown that people who have acorns are sent to the doctor or emergency room every year as the cause of falling over acorns.
For our family, we love raking the acorns and getting them up and taking them back to the deer. We hunt in our area especially in the winter so by feeding the deer acorns it provides them with food as we can fatten them up and it also allows us to save money by feeding them products right, straight from our yard.
Acorns also make great bread. For many, many years people have loved acorn bread which is a family and old pastime favorite. Acorn bread is very nutritious to make as well is a great way to use your acorns that are so stubbornly getting on your nerves in your yard.
