Miles and miles and acres and acres of almond tree orchards. 500,000ish acres to be exactish.
The picture above is the last photo I took thru our front windshield. Too many (sad frowny face) bees splattered there.
The bee boxes (housing the bees necessary for pollination) are shown in the picture below.
And those "dirt piles" you see in the image below, next to the processing structures, are actually not dirt, but almond shells!!!
(for perspective, see the trees, also brown, in front of the piles)
80% of the world's supply of almonds is grown right here in CA's central valley. But nevermind that minor little detail; I was just happy to soak in all the visual blossom splendor ...
