AND THE REST OF THE STORY......I miss my blogging friends sooo much! Last week I actually had some time to blog BUT EVERY SINGLE TIME I tried to get on-line I couldn't.....problems with the DIAL-UP SERVER!! Any who I wanted to answer some of the questions yall asked me on the comments about the pecans. Flora we have about 1000 trees now. About 100 trees were already here when we bought this land. We planted about 400 trees in 1997 and they are producing well. We planted the rest this past February and in the year 2004. We planted Sumners and Cape Fears mostly but we did plant some newer varieties this year. Mouse we grade the pecan by it's looks and by the way it feels in your hand. It is a quick & easy process. Clara I dont think the shaker would be a good idea for your apple tree, lol, I think you would end up with apple sauce! Not a bad thought though! Do I like pecans.......only if they are cooked in something....like a cake or mixed with chocolate!!! We do crack them open & taste to see what kind of nut we have but OH they make me sick!! My dog, however, loves them but they give him gas!!!! Marci we sell our pecans to a pecan buyer/broker that gives us the best price. Oh too funny about the mantle....it is made out of cypress wood......Danny would just die if he had to look at his mantle & know it was made out of one of his baby's!! LOL, if a limb breaks off of a tree around here we have a funeral & Danny wears black for a month!! LOL! Hey Lucy....howdy Annie.....Jen what about that pecan pie? (I hope Miller is doing well....Happy late birthday!) Hugs to my OFT girls...Kelli, Revee, Sandra!!! I miss my blogging friends soooooo much. Amazing how people affect your lives...even through a computer!!!
