California almond crop the largest in history...

Hi, I'm a former almond grower. I snack on them all the time...Have a few trees around the house. You have the tariffs issues with China and such a large crop, the prices may be a little lower this year. If this applies to you...Enjoy. lZS5jb20vbmV3cy9zdGF0ZS9jYWxpZm9ybmlhL2FydGljbGUyMzAyMDE5MjQ uaHRtbNIBQmh0dHBzOi8vYW1wLnNhY2JlZS5jb20vbmV3cy9zdGF0ZS9jYWx pZm9ybmlhL2FydGljbGUyMzAyMDE5MjQuaHRtbA?hl=en-US&gl=US&ceid= US%3Aen

Good to know! I appreciate you passing this along. I have family in food services and following food trends has always interested me, by proxy I guess

I heard California semi-loads of bee hives just arrived here in the cool temperatures of northern Minnesota for the summer months. Do you know what month the bees will be trucked back to California?

This story may interest you...Just came out a few days ago. Bloom starts about February 1 and ends in mid March...Depending on the weather that year. About 95% of the crop has to be cross pollinated. There is a new variety that is self pollinating, but not as tasty or in great demand. Brian es-cost-beekeepers-thousands/?fbclid=IwAR12a0l-Josj5CNvNfSbE Gi1cNYwPY7NMy3RLM5Ay9D5PkQbaTCHzdPJwBg

How many almonds are good to eat for a bypass patient in a day? or serving? Thank you!

There are three ways of dealing with difference: domination, compromise and integration. By domination only one side gets what it wants; by integration we find a way by which both sides may get what they wish.........

During the losing phase, 1 year if MO, and 2 if SMO -- I'd recommend forgoing them completely. There are 179 calories per oz (about 28 nuts) -- and 7g carbs. One in maintenance, a serving (1/2 to 1 oz) per day is reasonable.

They are calorie dense.
