We have a huge pecan tree in our yard. And when I say huge, I really mean it — as in if it fell, our house would be reduced to rubble. Every 2 to 3 years, the pecan tree decides to drop thousands of pecans all over the yard. The squirrels, in these years, do a little happy dance knowing their future is secure. But for me, I feel compelled to do something about some of those nuts littering my yard.
All I wanted was the pecans in my yard picked up – or rather, to find a way to get my kids to pick up the pecans in my yard. I didn’t expect to get a life lesson out of it, too!
