The freezing temperatures and blanket of snow arrived just in time to enjoy the fruits of our labour. We have pecan goodies a-plenty at the holidays (and all year long) thanks to three large trees at our family homestead. As a child I dreaded hearing 'it's that time again. .' , but this year - the first time I've been around for a harvest in many a moon - the visions of Chewies, cookies and candies kept my bucket full and my spirits high.
