This is the most pecans we've gotten so far.  We've gotten a handful every year for the last few.  We planted the pecan trees when we first moved here, about twelve years ago.  Last year we would have had more except for busy squirrels.  I think the squirrels have enjoyed the acorns and hickory nuts that abound this year.
It has been a dry summer so the pecans aren't as uniformly large as they would be if the rain had been more evenly distributed.
My mother-in-law always paid her property taxes with the sale of her pecans. I don't think we'll ever get that many!
