Re: checking in / happy fall!

Pam, I remember when I was a child in the Florida Panhandle
picking up nuts in our yard - we had several large pecan trees.
I shelled them and sold - perfect halves only - for 50cents a quart -
that would be several dollars now if you could find such around
here. Even in later years my grandmother was able to sell the nuts
for a pretty good price.  They are the most expensive nuts in the
stores around here.  Can't you find some sort of outlet for them?

Sorry I've been pretty much out of pocket lately.  Once the pecans start
dropping, I spend hours harvesting them and shucking the hulls in the flower
beds, so it ties up a fair part of my evenings.  You can't leave them on the
ground or you will have the most horrible weed problem you ever saw.  Little
tiny seedlings w/ taproots to China. They were coming down so fast Sunday I
kept getting hit in the back.  Like being in a dry hail storm.  They're a
tad bigger and noticeably heavier this year, must have been the rain we got
in May & June.
