Harvesting Almonds

I hope you all had a joyous and safe Thanksgiving weekend. Over the next few days, I will share some of my holiday memories from our family trip to Dubai - you can see several snapshots on my Instagram page @MarthaStewart48. I will also post various Thanksgiving Day photos from company employees - I always love to see how everyone celebrates this special occasion. 

But first, I wanted to share a few images from one of our last major harvests of the season - the almonds. In previous years, my trees only produced small amounts of almonds, but over the last couple of years, they have been extremely productive. In early autumn, there were hundreds of grayish-green drupes hanging from the tree branches and scattered on the ground below. It was very exciting.
