Dear Living Nutz~

This is an update about the almond trees that sprouted from LivingNutz raw almonds in my compost pile in Spring 2011. Ever since the start of this growing season I’ve wanted to send along photos of the two almond trees that I’ve been tending since I found them growing in one of our garden beds last summer. The original almond tree sprout that I first found while sifting compost in May 2011 didn’t do well in the pot where I had transplanted it~ I think it went into shock when it came out of the warm compost pile, and it slowly declined over about a month and I wasn’t able to save it:(

Then, half way through the garden season last summer, I saw a little tree growing amongst the veggies in one of our garden beds and remembered what the almond looked like and that it was another one! Not only that, I later found a second one. We had spread the compost from the same pile on those beds in the spring. So I let them grow there in the beds all season (they grew really fast!) and then dug them up just before frost in October and planted them in pots. They had already lost their leaves, and I put them in the basement for the winter where they could have a dormant period. They looked like twigs and I wasn’t sure how they would do, but this Spring they were looking lively and began sending out new leaves as soon as I brought them outside!

They’ve grown remarkably fast and the bigger one is now 3 feet tall! They’ve enjoyed the summer outside and will come back in this fall for winter dormancy.

It’s so neat to have this LIVING proof of how REALLY RAW your almonds are! I’m giving one of the almond trees to you to grow at LivingNutz:) 
Here’s some information I found about growing almond trees in pots, in case anyone else wants to sprout and grow an almond tree (make sure to use an unpasteurized almond!)

Many thanks for all the almonds and other delicious raw nuts I and my family have enjoyed from Living Nutz, and keep up the exceptional work!!!

Be well~
