That's nuts.

Subby, I believe the word you were looking for was "bananas"

Everyone knows the best nuts are stolen from California.
 
2014-01-20 01:23:35 PM  
Sounds fruity as a nut cake to me.

Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't.

I don't get it.

That's.... a rational response to a rapidly-increasing price in a fungible agricultural commodity that doesn't require secured storage.

"The Wild West is alive and well in certain aspects," said Danielle Oliver of the California Farm Bureau Federation. "There's always someone out there trying to make a quick dollar on somebody else's hard work."

With all the examples going on right now, today, which dwarf anything that went on in the 1800s... they chose 'the wild west?'

Of course they're trying to make a quick dollar. It's better than working for peanuts.

"Whatcha in for buddy?"
"Nut rustling"

I understand that universities have been investigating this phenomena. It's a big thing in macadamia. I don't know why they pecan these poor people just trying to make a better life for themselves so they can lounge on a beech. I can't think of a better life, cashew?

\\Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week. Try your waitress, tip the veal.

I'm not convinced this was a selfish act for monetary gain, it's far more likely misguided parents are the culprits.
Search hospital and care center records for incidents involving kids with food allergies.

Ah, California my home!  Land of fruits and nuts!

Oh, wait, we are talking about agriculture?  Unless you've lived in or even driven through, it's hard to appreciate just how huge an Ag state CA is.  Outside of the big cities, and the giant desert, it's this astounding swath of high value crops.  Lettuce, citrus, avocados, nuts, grapes, strawberries, et cetera.  Not to mention the cattle.  I sometimes describe this place as "I live where your salad came from".

Chin nuts?
 
2014-01-20 01:47:39 PM  
Stock up now. There has been no rain this rainy season.

That was pretty good subby.

Thieves also steal avocados, harvesting them at night, stripping entire orchards. Avocados go for a dollar a pound and there is, not surprisingly, a peak in demand leading up to Super Bowl Sunday, so stay tuned.

I'm always impressed by how there's fields even in the middle of a city block.

Mmmmm. Beefy salads.

Real easy remedy, just stake out an orchard, and a little firearm to the leg action. If they can't run, it's a pretty good bet they can't drive.

You want to get nuts? Let's get nuts!

^^

By the numbers, we're already technically into unprecedented drought territory (the best kind of unprecedented)... if it happens not to rain in the remaining few months left in the season, there is going to be holy hell in the food markets.  Also massive overdrafting of groundwater, even by California standards.

No, the real question is where to find walnuts for only $2 p/lb!

/loves baking nuts
//pecans+2 tbsp butter+350 degrees for a few minutes = yum!
