DH's Project

We moved into my old family home about 5 years ago. The two pecan trees in the backyard had been neglected for years, and we haven't done much better with them until this year. This year we had a good crop. DH has been coming in from work in the afternoons and shelling pecans for an hour or so for the last month and a half. It's slow going because the hulls didn't come off, so he's cracking them off with one kind of antique nutcracker and then using an intertia sheller to crack the pecan itself. He is producing perfect halves.

The walnuts were a gift from DS and his wife who moved into a house with a walnut tree last year.
