Good read. Thanks for posting. Seems like people had better think about growing almonds somewhere else besides California.

I was really surprised at the total percentage of almonds grown in California. I was also surprised at the volume of water necessary per almond. Throw in a drought and it definitely strikes me as a recipe for problems.

You haven’t driven through almond country. It goes on, and on, and on, and on.

I love almonds but I think I’m going to cut way back on eating them.
