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.
