303 almonds

What 303 almonds looks like

303 almonds off one tree, and still a few near the top to knock down when it’s not quite so windy and their trajectory, as they fall, is less erratic.

The previous record was 101, which was set the year before last. Last year there was plenty of blossom but it was wet when the bees were supposed to be around and about and we only clocked up 67.

I like to keep a tally of these things, although it’s not as important as eating them.

We’ll be mixing them, shelled, with sultanas and walnut kernels (also home-grown) in little bags to have as snacks on winter nights in front of the telly.
