Snow in the Orchards?
OK…maybe not snow… but it sure looks like it. In a few days these trees will be completely green and the bloom period will be finished. The fertilized blooms are beginning to mature into almonds and the others are falling to the ground. It will take four to five months for the blooms to transform into an almond and the work to make that happen is just beginning. It has been a challenging spring, so far, and I wonder what other surprises Mother Nature has in store for us.
