The pecan trees are dropping pecans left and right but they are still green. Walking in the yard at this point you are very likely to get bonked on the head with a nut. The trees are still loaded so I expect that I may have an abundance of pecans. Too bad I can't eat them and I absolutely love pecans especially during the holidays when everything is made with pecans. It is truly southerners delight.
If anyone wants me to ship them some pecans I will be happy to do so as long as you pay for shipping. I have eight trees - Stewart Pecans, one I have never heard of - Silver Queen and Paper Shell. I cannot tell the difference in the pecans or the trees. They are different - but I cannot identify which is which. I will send what I can if you request it.
Buddy is liking the pecans because the squirrels are having a feast right now as they prepare for the winter and have plenty for now too. The quirrels break them open and drop them to the ground and Buddy scarfs them up and runs to the house when he has a mouthful. If he's not grabbing a nut he is making a bee line to the pear tree where he quickly spots a pear on the ground and grabs and runs toward the house. You would think that it would make him sick. NOT. Buddy eats everything.
We are certainly into the summertime pattern of rain nearly everyday. Down here in the Mobile area we get an abundance each year and we love it and depend on it. You can watch the grass grow right now - needs cutting every week.
Along with our typical rain the Atlantic is beoming active which means hurricanes will be forming. Our first tropical system is expected to form and be named today. It is going to be imperitive that I get me some supplies soon. You don't want to be in the store trying to get supplies when we have one come into the Gulf. It is literally a MAD HOUSE people scrambling. Seems like nearly everyone waits till the last minute.
I hope I didn't bore you too much just rambling on. Wishing you all have a great day. Just for today - make it the best.
