Pecan Harvesting

It's February and we still have a ton of pecans falling from the trees. We have been picking buckets of pecans since this fall. We had a great harvest this year, and they are sooo good. Have you seen how expensive organic pecans are at the store? We have so many that we have taken to using them as recreational items. Sometimes we launch them across our backyard with a bat, and other times we put our busy little boys to work shelling them. The little one will NOT be exempt from this task. I suggest you purchase your own pecan trees if you live in a place that can grow them, because it will keep the the kids busy for hours.

One must first collect the appropriate pecans.

Then one must bang them with a rock to crush the shells and remove the pecans. I am so proud that my little cavemen know how to use tools.

Don't waste anytime eating them as they can provide proper fuel for more crushing.

Mmmmmm! Yummy pecans!
