Almonds are one of my new
favorite foods, so I decided to see if we could grow them.
Traditionally, almonds are grown in the sunny south, especially in
California where summers are dry, but orchardists have recently
developed hardy almonds that can live all the way north to zone
5. We chose Alenia (Prima) and Dessertniy (Bounty) because they
are late-blooming (which means less likely to succumb to our frequent
spring frosts), have thin shells, and are supposed to have tasty
nuts. (Bitterness can be a problem with some almond varieties.)
Our chicken waterer never spills in coops or tractors. That means clean water and dry bedding for your birds.
