What do most people do with their pine cones when they fall off the tree?
I thought I would be "natural" and leave them there. So I have for 20 years. But I've noticed that when I step on them, it forces them into the ground (often somewhat wet and soft) and kills the grass, and then when I sit on the ground, I always seem to be sitting on a hard pine cone that is sticking out a little.
Of course they do break down eventually (5 to 15 years?), but what do most of you do with them when they fall, and what would you do with all the ones that are poking out of the ground now?
Thanks a lot.
