I just wanted to share a little "insider" info. As many of you know I have a whole bunch of pecan trees and I sell alot of my nuts to a local wholesale outfit and it's not rocket science when several other places start hitting you up for your measly little 11 acres of pecans. So I did some research and it seems there is a major pecan shortage this year due to some sort of fungus. Lucky for me I didn't get hurt by it so I think I'm gonna start doing some serious shelling! LOL! Soooo..... if you are gonna want pecans for the holidays I suggest you get to your local Sam's and stock up soon. I was told they may go up to as much as 20 bucks a pound! Wha??? I wouldn't pay that for them. But, there are some crazy arse folks who would.
