Many Pecans is a Good Thing

I have collected so many pecans, I've filled two large boxes. Now, I'd like to sell some. Please click the link below if you are interested in obtaining a five pound bag of pecans from Texas.

Too Many Pecans?

I've been collecting pecans around my metroplex region, especially the SMU campus, all day long now. I now have so many I see pecans when I close my eyes. I suppose it's possible to have too much of a good thing. These nuts are going to be shipped to people who feed squirrels.

Pecan Season

With pecan season underway, I am trying to find time to gather as much pecans as I can for my backyard buddies. I don't get that many visitors, due to the lack of mature trees in my backyard. However, my neighbors on both sides have trees, and squirrels do occasionally go there. Today, I collected lots of small pecans from land owned by a guy from my church. This should increase the chances of furry visitors foraging in my yard.

Squirrel Awareness Month

It is October now, and that means it's Squirrel Awareness Month. Most of the nut harvesting by squirrels in the northern hemisphere occurs in October. Here in Texas, where it is very hot, October is the month that ends summer and begins fall. I haven't seen much squirrel activity in the past few months, but hopefully things will change this month. I will be travelling around the area to places where squirrels abound, to watch them. To celebrate October as Squirrel Awareness Month, I put up a squirrel feeder in my backyard and filled it with nuts, now that my redbud tree finally grew big enough. Updates will be posted.
