Last week I went to the TriState Pecan meeting field day that was held in Raymond, Mississippi. It was a great day, sunny and hot. The crowd number exceeded expectations. I was able to interact with a number of folks from Mississippi, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, and Florida (and maybe more). In the past few years I have been at a number of these field days and they are always educational. What I like is that they create a relaxed atmosphere where folks can interact and feel comfortable doing so. The meeting this year was hosted by the Mississippi Pecan Growers Association (http://www.mspecans.org/). Donna Hamlin Beliech, MSU Area Horticulture Agent, was kind enough to share some photos of the field day. See them below. I encourage anyone interested in Mississippi pecans to join the organization.
