I should know this but.... any connection with a wet/dry spring for acorn crops? My guess is it would take an extream sway either way to make a difference.

we had a couple oaks in the yard when i was growing up and through all the rainy seasons and all the droughts of KS we always had acorns no matter what so personally i think they are good either way.

I should have isolated my question better, I was wondering about size of the acorns. Sometimes there are barely little acorns under the caps and then there are years when they are 1 1/2" long. Didn't know if wet/dry weather did this thus some prediction as to this years crop?

good question

I know this fall we had a lot of those really small acorns that actually fell off prematurely. Some of the acorns stayed on and produced an average sized acorn. The previous spring was one of the wettest springs we have had in a while. I don't know if there is much connection with spring weather...I would think the weather closer to the time period when they are putting them on would have more of a chance to change the crop. In my humble opinion
