I found a rooting almond in my worm bin...

Recommended Posts

I found it while transferring my worms to a much larger 'farm'. I placed it in a pot with some of the worm castings. If this little 'sprout' succeeds in fully emerging, I'm hoping to be adding to my menagerie!

 

I posted a couple days ago about my sweet little peach tree, and now I hope to have an almond tree to add to the mix! Carla's Country Living book does cover a bit of infomation, but I'd like to hear from anyone who has successfully grown a tree from seed.

 

I hope to be posting a 'birthing' pic soon!

 

Oh, and I found two more cuttings of the peach tree that are also still green! WHOOPEE!!

I have an almond tree. The nuts are not really all that tasty, and are not big like the ones in the store. We think that's because the tree has to fertilize itself. Your peach should crossfertilize yours okay, which should make for much fatter and nicer nuts. The nuts do make very good high-protein critter-food additives.

Thanks Ambergris!

 

About how old is the tree before it starts producing? (Providing my little root "takes root" that is!) B)

I think it was four to five years, maybe? It was seriously neglected for a few years and when I looked again it was because there were baby almond trees sprouting all over the place.
