Almonds

Between the weather and pure neglect the fact that the trees we planted last year are still alive this year is a miracle.  Then to discover that the hardy little things are not only budding out, but flowering – and in some cases fruiting – is amazing!  The almond trees, which, if asked we’d have said were dead twigs, have actually set a few fruit. Here are our first almonds:

Maybe someday we will get enough almonds to be able to make almond flour. This year we’re just relieved the trees are alive.
