The reason to my sleepless nights:

this pine cone! It squeaks when it opens, and that takes weeks. This explains the strange, clear sounds at night of things falling down and closing doors (it made other things fall and doors are wooden, hence the association) that woke me up. Normal crop is 20--30 pine nuts per cone, shop said, but this yielded 55. Tips and tricks: for me it worked to just keep it indoors, not above the heater which I believed was a must.
Pine exhibition. 
 Pesto step one.
Pesto step two and three. (Story ends with garlic outruling it all.)
Most interesting of all is that nuts themselves tasted a bit like resin and forest
