Testing Almonds

Despite what California farmers would have you think almonds are extremely drought tolerant. What they aren’t is particularly cold tolerant. At least that was what I believed. I have a few Russian Almond bushes flourishing but I really wished I could grow a few sweet almonds. Thanks to One Green World I think I might be able to. I am going to be testing two of their almond varieties out this year.

Planted inside the protection of the fenced yard with the dogs to protect them from rabbit predation. If these trees successfully survive winter in Wyoming I will be deliriously happy and graft out as many as possible.

So stay tuned to see if I can get anything else crazy to grow around these parts.
