Our 2013 Natchitoches Pecans’ pecan harvest is underway. We have worked very hard all year tending our orchard. This year’s pecan crop at Little Eva Plantation looks to be good. It is not a limb breaking crop but most all the trees have some pecans on them. We would rather have a good crop year in and year out as this does not stress the trees like a limb breaking crop does.
Yesterday Oct 31 (Halloween) we had over 7 inches of rain within a few hours. We were in need of some rain but were a bit concerned when the rain kept falling and falling and falling. Thank goodness our pecan orchard is on high ground and drains very well. The weather is perfect today – Nov 1 – the sun is out and temperature is in the 70’s so all should be dry enough to resume pecan picking on Monday.
Check out our newest videos on our YouTube channel that shows Mark on the pecan shaker shaking trees. Or to see post of the pecan harvester picking pecans go to 2013 Louisiana Pecan Harvest. All for now … post again in a few days!
