Buckeyes-in-training





Last evening, we took a family excursion down to the cemetery in Antwerp and picked up buckeyes. After a quick lesson in 'buckeyes are like rocks, we don't eat them" Owen was ready to help pick. He gave us a solid 20 minutes of picking up nuts and putting them in his little bucket before he was distracted with other things (sticks, dirt, throwing buckeyes, etc). We spent about 45 minutes and picked up about 3/4 of a 5 -gallon bucket full. I'm not sure what the whole plan is for all these poisonous nuts that you can't eat but I'm sure Paul has a great idea in mind : ) If anything we can make buckeye necklaces...

  1. Aren't you supposed to start a bonfire and throw the buckeyes into it to watch them explode?? :)
