I put a second eco-bundle together this afternoon using the same silk and
beets (should do well as it totally stained my hands)
onion skins (they were white onions so I am not sure what that will do)
blood oranges and avocado skins.
Yes, I had to eat two avocados for art's sake.........
And I took my walnut shells and acorns, beat them into submission with a meat beater and put them into a pot to boil. They are not sitting outside "steeping".
Them immediately turned a nice dark brown.......
Lots of nice happy things happening.
If you take the center of the acorns and dry them, then grind them, you can make a very bitter flour that is edible.
