Almond market shrinking??
This from Bee-l,
"Almonds are the top agricultural export to Russia from the Golden State, followed by pistachios, rice, prunes and wine. Last year, California exported $102.4 million worth of the nuts to Russia, making it the eighth largest foreign market. Nationwide, almonds rank third among farm products exported to Russia, behind chicken and cattle."

Shrinking.................Hmmmmm, I don't think so. Every 10-20 acre parcel that comes up in the valley is being turned into nut trees, and fields that are normally row crops are being turned into the nuts. Talking to farmers and such, the almond train is chugging along just fine, and gaining speed.
