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.

  1. My grandparents have several pecan trees, and the small ones are the best. They definitely don't dry out as much. I'll be interested to see how many pecans you get in future years. My grandparents say there are good and bad years. Sometimes with an overabundance, and then other times with very few.
