Guess what.

Almonds!   Local Almonds!

A young neighbor showed these to me – and had me taste them.  Yummy!

But still not quite believing it, I needed to see an “almond” in the shell.   Yep – that looks pretty much that the unshelled almonds I’ve known.

And here are some almonds on the tree.  (Boy do the insects love those leaves…)

Dang!  I have tree envy.

I’m on my way home from Canada as this goes to press.   When I get home, I will see about getting some almonds planted on our property.  I may have to (shock!) take up some horticulture my-SELF.  (oh no)
