I grew up in central Spain. My father earned a living out of gardening and grape production. I went to university and found employment in the city, but still do part-time farming in this arid land. I planted my first almond trees in 2013. I have turned vineyards and arable land into almond orchards. I share my observations, trials and agricultural practices in this blog , where you can find my experiences in extensive almond farming under dry and severe conditions.
