Rosie Gets Pecans!

A friend (a very good friend) brought me a grocery bag full of pecans today. Usually they gather 40 or so 5-gallon buckets of pecans. This year, only eleven. And I got one. I was told about this year's short harvest of pecans at Island Farm in Manteo when Mr. Hawthorne and I visited this month. Between the squirrels and Irene, there were very few pecans there. Pecans at the Teeter are $9 for 8 ounces so I'm sitting on a gold mine here.

I love pecans! It can be difficult to find pecans around here, as walnuts and almonds seem to be more popular in this area.

Pecans are my favorite nut!

You are mighty lucky!
I found only one tree this week that had pecans that hadn't been bored and rotten.
One I found had small but so sweet nuts.
