We are experimental gardeners--trying almost anything that catches our fancy. We were told by locals, "experts", and passersby that "almonds won't grow in Texas." Last year my dear patient husband spent two hours at the garden table, shelling almonds.
Here are the almonds that aren't growing this year:

This photo was taken this morning. I think the almonds are going to not grow again this year. Husband may have to spend more time at the garden table, whacking almonds!

Thank you, Sheal. We have found that "it won't grow here" means "I don't want to do the work". Gardening is fun, recreational, and so much more rewarding culinarily than golf!

I'd find anything much more rewarding than golf. :) The Masters at Augusta is an exception though, not for the golf but for all the beautiful Azaleas and Rhododendrons.
