Pine Cone brings thoughts of Christmas

2013-12-01 - Gentry Mill Road, East Adair County, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener.
Saw this natural Christmas Decoration on Gentry Mill Road on one of my husband Ed's famous "short cuts" from Columbia to Russell Springs, KY on Saturday. the short cut only took us an extra half hour or so. The pines lighted by morning sunshine reminded me of Christmas and reminded Ed of pine nuts. We haven't found research that shows pine cones can supply pine nuts for the kitchen but Ed says he bets one of the Farmers Market Gardeners could find a way to cultivate the Mediterranean kind here. In any case, won't it be nice when the Farmers' Market is open all year long including holiday times with Christmas Foods and high tunnel grown fresh Christmas tomatoes? And select cuttings of ornamental pine cones like this one and bags of Mistletoe and real, Adair County grown Cedar Christmas trees? I thinks so. -- Linda.
