hello 2020

hello 2020 and goodbye 2019. I am so ready for a new year and a new decade. As I was reminiscing on the last decade and especially the last few years, I couldn't help but feel overwhelmed with a sense of loss and grief. The last three years we have had to say goodbye to loved one that we weren't expecting to say goodbye to. Of course, there were highs mixed in with those lows. This year, Tim and I will celebrate TEN years of marriage, we welcomed two kids over the last five years, we are finally getting settled in to our homestead in the country and professionally are accomplishing some pretty cool things.

I looked back on my Instagram top nine and was happy to see so many great memories. I love seeing so many happy moments to reflect on.

Picking up almonds

Almond harvest has quite a few steps and processes involved. I showed a glimpse into shaking and sweeping almonds on our farm. Next up, is picking up the almonds.

Almond harvest has been in full swing for the past six plus weeks across California's Central Valley. We just finished shaking over the weekend. Now it is the final push to sweep, condition and pick up all our almonds over the next two weeks. Crossing my fingers we finish by the end of next week. It is a long process to get all varieties off the trees and on their way to the hullers.

There are so many moving parts and equipment involved it is so much easier to just show you. Telling you would take too many words and jargon that no one understands. Since most of you probably wont be able to come out the farm to take a look first hand, check out this video I made to show you all about picking up almonds out of the field and getting them on their way to the huller.  




Until Next  Time,
