Abundant Almonds

Our Almond tree groaned with the weight of the nuts it had produced and then one heavy limb broke off.  We propped it up the best we could and hoped the nuts would still ripen.

The branch that had snapped seem to have more nuts than any other.

The outer casing was starting to crack open on a lot of the nuts, revealing the shell of the actual nut inside.

This afternoon I have picked two big pots full and will dry them out and then crack off the outer casing.  We will have our own nuts for Xmas!!
