I wish I had a dollar for every pecan tree seedling that I have pulled out of the flower pots in my backyard. The squirrels have a habit of bringing pecans from other people’s yards and burying them in the pots on our deck in the fall. Then in the spring, when the squirrels fail to retrieve them, the nuts sprout and grow. Our backyard is too small to support pecan trees, but I’m pretty sure that we would have a whole grove by now if we had planted them all.
“Millions of trees in the world are accidentally planted by squirrels who plant nuts, then forget where they hid them. Do good and forget. It’ll grow some day.” ~Anonymous
