No need to crack and soak the almonds; if the ground is soft enough, just bury them 2 to 3 inches below ground...keep an eye out for field mice stealing them.
You need cold hardy variety almonds for your area. Plums apricots, apples, and other chestnuts, walnuts and pekans should do well.
If you have the time place a few hundred in good fertile soil and see what happens.
Keep us posted.

We have been hearing about the unusual weather you are having. It will complicate the growth of the new trees...just observe.
It will be interesting to see the outcome.
Long term it will interesting to find what trees and shrubs are best suited for your climate/microclimate.
Did you plant any acorns or wild pear seeds?

Out of curiosity...any oak trees growing in your area.
How about the other trees we are using here to reforest…
maybe wild roses,
wild olives, etc
Do you see any of these growing by the sides of the roads or on abandoned lots?
