Your post intrigued me and was very informative. Since reading I have started planting left over almonds that we picked about a month ago from trees growing on the side of the road.
I live in a semi arid region on a worn out sheep and grain farm. I'm trying to find ways to re forest my 20 acres and thought this was a great idea. I do have quite a few gums and pines and lots of old man salt bush but 2 thirds of my land is just natural grasses.
Thanks for your inspiration
