normal progression of hull split (July 23)
This picture is of nuts with hull split at the stage I would have expected most nuts to be since I saw the beginning of hull split more than 10 days ago.

The nuts in the lower picture are representative of most of the Nonpareil nuts I am seeing.  Many nuts not split at all, and many with only early splitting along the suture line.  This is surprising considering the warm weather we have had.  Hopefully things will move along faster so that harvest is not delayed.  The later harvest starts, the later it will end, increasing the chances of wet weather at the tail end of harvest.
