I have seen this done a couple weeks ago and was not very happy that they were using the immature pomegranades until I was told that they were using the fallen fruits. The wind, the birds, the squirrels ... Or may be they simply fall out themselves. Today I had the idea to also look for them and did not have to go very far. They were all lying on the ground right next door.
Brought my share home;
Gave them a little bath;
and laid them out to dry :)
A thread, a needle ... Et voila!
Had some visiting friends so will continue another time!
