Some of you may remember that last year we discovered a pecan tree on our property after Don cleared away the undergrowth, vines, etc. I harvested quite a few pecans from it..He also cut a tree down that was crowding it, stunting it's growth on one side..Now that it gets full sun it's thriving and we have loads of new pecans growing..A little tlc works every time. (most of the time)

      Nice. Pecans are a pretty big crop where I grew up. The orchards are lovely in the spring.

      Lovely surprise and so nice it's doing well!! Can't beat something growing that also provides food, especially a tree :)))

      The tree is growing quickly, I never saw a pecan tree before and would like to try a nut!

      Beautiful shot of your full tree, Sara. They have such pretty shapes. Yours looks really healthy - my mom had to remove hers from her yard because of it's size!
      And thanks for liking my zoo "eye" shots!

      I like plus the first photo. To the other two they need something of contrast.

      I bet you are glad you cleared the space around it...pecans are my favourite...usually on a sticky danish pastry!

      They like the heat!! We have many pecan trees in SC and plenty of heat! It was 97 degrees today!

      It looks a little like the black walnut trees that grow in these parts. I think I would prefer pecans. What a fantastic reward after all that hard work.

      OH YUM... definitely a tree I'd want if I lived further south!
