This is something of an aside question, just something interesting I had found. A while back I had tried my first attempt at gardening, and tried to grow some mint. It didn't work, nothing grew, and the pot just sat outside for sometime. I decided to try again, and came to toss out the soil to put in fresh new soil, and found an acorn, exactly like my profile pic, deep down at the very bottom of the pot. This is a relatively large terracotta pot. I certainly didn't put it there, and the soil didn't look disturbed at all. I tried to look it up, but couldn't find anything regarding squirrles or other animals storing/planting acorns in pots. Is this a common thing? Anyone else have this before?

It typically is not whether they will store acorns in a pot rather it is when will they stop.
