Is Creeping Charlie in your lawn a good thing or a bad thing?
Is there a sure-fire way to get rid of Creeping Charley?
If necessary, you could put them in smaller bags & put one in the trash each week. Or if you like crafts or have kids or grandkids who like crafts here are some ideas.
You could also put them into the smaller bags & donate to nursery schools, elementary schools, nursing homes, adult craft classes, etc. for their craft projects. The same if true if you have any crafting friends. Often people look for them to do their own crafts. Some people also eat them, but I've never done that and think you need to do some research on that one. I've also read that they can be used as wild bird food. I hope these ideas help you. Good luck!
Get some squirrels. Call the humane society to see if they want to pick them up. Pigs love them too.
1. Get someone stronger to help you with your heavy acorns.

Place them in a wheel barrow to move.
Have you thought of getting a piglet and fencing it under the tree, provide the piglet wifresh drinking water trough, household food scraps + lots of acorns. By the end of the season you will have a porker for your freezer. (ps. Collect the manure, rot it down in a 44 gallon drum with water, (a lid and air valve to lesson smells.) Then periodically bucket it out into your potato and tomato garden etc. You will have the healthiest produce around.
