WNC Persimmon Seeds Project Harsh Winter

The persimmon seed has been used for many years by old timers to project the harshness of winter around the area. One cuts open the seed from within the persimmon, and depending on the predominate shape you find, will foretell how the weather will be in the following winter. A knife shape indicates that a bitter cold winter will follow, a spoon shape foretells a winter with a lot of snow, and a fork means that winter will be mild. Below is a photo sent in from Riece May in Leicester, NC who opened up several persimmons this past week from a persimmon tree in her field.

What do you see? I see several knives and spoons, which would mean a harsh snowy winter for WNC.
