There are a lot of almonds this year and the tree has grown quite tall.
They’re so nice and easy to pick – once you get your hand to them.
I’ve been doing it in dribs and drabs and now have just the highest ones left which I may be reduced to knocking down with a pole.
So far I’ve picked and hulled 467 (it’s a tradition of mine to count almonds). The record is 650 – all from one tree.
