Washington DC is know for their cherry blossoms. A beautiful canvas of white that decorates our capitol in the spring. What is less known are the very important blossoms on the various nut trees that mature into the nuts we sell and eat.
Here is a picture from a friend of an almond orchard. On the ground, it looks like snow. But the white that decorates these trees will mature into nutlets that will then grow into almonds. This process takes 6 to 7 months until harvest beginning in late August.
It's true California does have their water issues. But mother nature's agenda, year in and year out, continues in all of its majesty.
