Nuts!

My husbands coworker, the one with a pecan grove, asked us to come out and pick up more pecans "on the halves" meaning we keep half of what we pick up and give the other half back to the owners. 
This is our haul from 2 afternoons. I helped one afternoon and son Bobby helped the other.  The owners had some fancy wire baskets that rolled along the ground that picked up the pecans with a lot less kneeling. So we did some bending and stooping but not nearly as much as we would of without those handy tools. 
I tried weighing these pecans on our bathroom scales. I am no sure exactly how much the containers weigh but my best estimate is we have about 50 pounds of pecans, just waiting to be cracked and shelled. 

I am just amazed with this bounty!

  2. What a wonderful friend to share with you! Just tonight I finished shelling my pecans. I lost count on the number of boxes I put in the freezer. It's so good to have them because one never knows when we could have another crop like the one this year.

  3. You have a lot of pecans there! Your husband has a very generous co worker to be willing to share the way that he does.

  6. that was a wonderful offer to be able to participate in. YUM pecan pie and then every cookie recipe that calls for walnuts can have pecans instead which are far better tasting. OR ...oh my just think if you had an ice cream maker....butter pecan ice cream. Ha your pecans have made me hungry :)
