|Strawberries being picked|
|Under the canopy: Raspberries|
In the field: Some type of young leafy green
As I've noted other times, particularly as we've traveled in the great southwest, I am amazed at the enormity of agricultural -- not just the fields, but the ancillary services that make up this whole food growing process.
This is a beautiful place -- we've clearly escaped parched southern California. I love seeing the straight rows of crops going for great distances as we drive by.
|I think these are berries (black or rasps)|
We passed a hand painted vegetable stand sign advertising 7 grapefruit or 7 avocado or 7 artichoke for $1. We should have stopped but couldn't. It's not easy to stop this 45,000 pound, 65 foot train.
There were also great fields of raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and many, miles of beautiful hillside grapevines.
I get hungry just thinking of this place....
