Winter arrives in mid-November

    Last week we harvested a lot of pecans despite the below normal temperatures. Conditions were dry and the harvest machinery was working great. Unfortunately, 3 inches of snow fell yesterday and the grove was blanketed in white (photo above). It will take some time before the snow melts and the ground dries enough to resume harvest. In the mean time, we'll be in the barn running harvested nuts through the cleaner.
