Late January pecan harvest

    Every year we experience several days of unseasonably warm weather during the last week of January. This year was no different. On Wednesday (28 January), the sun was shinning and the temperatures topped out above 70 degrees F (21 C). It was a great day to wrap up the second harvest in many area pecan groves. In the photo above, a local pecan grower employed a swarm of harvesters to cover the ground as quickly as possible.
