California's fruit basket and mixed nuts

Despite the drastic measures that some farmers are taking during our three-year drought, including fallowing fields, a report from the Modesto Bee suggests that some crops are still doing quite well overall.

One exception seems to be almonds, a signature crop of the Central Valley that enjoyed a bumper production season last year. But according to another report in the Stockton Record the statewide almond harvest will likely be significantly down — even a 10 percent decrease from last year was said by some to be "too optimistic."
