    Well i have to say,those are some big numbers.But I wouldnt count my chickens until they hatch.Everything has a big boom,then falls and levels again.Just to many variables for me.

    Default Almonds

    Well anyway in spite of the whole free for all it is a real blessing to have all that money flowing down the pipeline. Last week there were shakers and sweepers being moved all over now the bottom dumps for the nuts are getting moved around. I personally haven't seen any loads of nuts being hauled yet but they are on the ground and drying. Once they get going there is like one semi per minute for 2months & more going up & down the highway next to my shop. It is a production of a huge amount of high value food and I have to admit I am proud to be a part of the process!

    TwT, I saw nothing about price in your link.

    Nonpareil were going for $2.00 & pollinators were $1.60

    So, don't get to happy and wet your skivies.

    P.S. volume does not equal price.

    tecumseh sezs: but volume and (times) price does equal qross. since agriculturalgoods are inelastic (that's an economic concept) price and volume don't move exactly 1:1 in relations to one another. it is not uncommon for gross (for an individual) to expand when the crop is small and the price is large.

    And none of it does any of us any good if the great state of California doesn't fix the water problem so that there are almonds for us to go to next year.
