I am fortunate enough to work at a company that has a pecan tree. Apparantly all my coworkers do not realize this or do not care! I stayed late one day to pick up some pecans.Here is a before and after shot of my score! ALL FREE! Check around where you live. There might be someone that has a pecan tree that just lets them rot on the ground. Ask if you can have them free, you might be suprised. I was curious and looked at Kroger and a small bag of unshelled pecans was selling for $5.99!
