For the Love of Pecans - day 2 update

We're up to a total of 28 pounds pecans. Didn't get to spend much time picking - it rained yesterday. Rain is in the forcast today too. I did find out that I should be able to get more money for them if I drive across the river (MS River) to Arkansas.

For the Love of Pecans

Ever since the pecans started falling, I've been seeing people pulled over on the side of the road picking them. I thought that all these people were just "lovin'" pecans. No, they're selling them!!!

This caused me to revisit some of our trees...So far, from one tree, we've gathered 17 pounds. We probably have at least five trees.

I also thought that our runty little pecans weren't so desireable. Then I found out that they get top dollar! I was told that they contain more oil.

We're going to hit it hard today and take them down to a pecan stand to see what we can get. Wish us luck! be continued.
