| Outdoor Board|| No pecans this year? - Salmon on 10/24/14 at 7:49 am|
Why don't I have pecans this year? And I haven't really noticed any in trees or falling around Shreveport either.
What causes pecan trees to not produce for a year?
Normally I get at least 6-7 5-gal buckets full of pecans from my 3 trees in my backyard.
Not a single pecan this year....

I quickly lean out the window to see a kid d...

I have a bunch of assorted peppers and herbs in the process of drying in my kitchen.

Found this old Raleigh 3 Speed on CL. The guy wants $100 for it, but he has already came down from $150. I can probably get it for $50.

Any recommendations on a bicycle trailer for a toddler/kid? These things range from $100 to $600. Are the cheap ones pure trash?
Also, would you ride on neighborhood streets with your kid in one? The bike path is about 1 mile away from my house. I can ride wide, neighborhood roads to it, but...

My wife is looking to tighten her stomach back up to pre-baby days. She is wanting to do yoga for some reason. She hates standard gyms.
I've never done yoga so I have no idea if it is a legit workout for what she wants to accomplish.
