Oklahoma has bunches of pecan trees. Growing up on a ranch, our pecan trees provided a good income for me around November every year. I always had Christmas money, because our trees had enough pecans for the family to use and freeze, and for me to sell at the local farm store, usually for about 40 cents a pound. You could always find my mom and I after school and on the weekends under the trees, picking up pecans until dark. Loved it!
