On Thursday morning (9/25) we had our first rainfall in many months. We only received about a tenth of an inch, but it was enough to wash the dust off the leaves and to slow harvest a bit. On Friday there were a few widely scattered clouds and showers. Next week will be warm again and we will complete almond harvest.

There was enough rain to moisten nuts on the ground. We were careful to pick up all the nuts that were wind-rowed prior to the rain. Any nuts on the ground, such as these Monterey almonds, are scattered and will dry again quickly with the coming sunshine. Note the shiny leaves, all that dust is gone!
