Nuts... not as in crazy...... although sadly I do know some people who are..but that's another story!
No, the nuts I'm referring to are these:
Our very first harvest of almonds!
You can see the fruit/hull which is sort of like a dried up peach/apricot, it's not edible, but I wouldn't want to eat it anyway - it is tough and leathery! This fruit splits and inside are the almonds (pits). These have to dry for about a week or until an audible rattle can be heard and then it's time to crack them open and see what's inside. Will keep you posted!
