    Default Cabbage in the field


    I love driving through Yuma and the Imperial Valley (They also have
    Dillards ;-) during harvest time.

    The air is filled with the scent of what is being harvested. Oh my
    gosh, the Imperial Valley when onions are being harvested is a delight
    to the senses.

    Cabbage in the field. Just look at all that cole slaw.

    Thew photo reminded me of when I lived in Wisconsin. There were a
    couple of sauerkraut packing plants there and cabbage fields surrounded
    them for what seemed like miles and miles.

    Thanks for the memory boost!

    Just out there for the first time a few months ago. I apparently was
    there between crops because I drove by mile after mile of fields that
    looked like they were just planted so there wasn't even a clue what was
    growing.

    We only have one growing season here and cabbage is a fairly common crop
    here.

    I could have spent a lot more time there. The rows of the different
    colored lettuce was beautiful too.
    Hmmm. Might use that as an excuse to make another trip to Yuma, then
    we can eat at our friend's Mexican Restaurant. Yeah, that's it.

    Then you know what I mean about the scent of the crop in the air. I

    Sorry you missed it George. You'll just have to come out this way
    again. Next time let me know and we'll meet you for lunch somewhere.

    Years ago the farmers would put a sign up alongside the road telling
    what was in the field. Haven't seen them do that for years though.

    If someone is out there and I'm_that_curious, I'll stop and ask.
    They've always been nice and answered questions.

    I love driving around in California agricultural areas.

    One of my strongest memories is driving down the coast (on the
    5?) from LA to San Diego. In the area of Camp Pendleton the
    smell of wild fennel was wonderful.

    Strawberry fields have a wonderful odor, also.

    Many times we have stopped the car to investigate what was
    growing in the fields. The hardest to identify at a distance
    was young celery. Garlic and artichokes were interesting to see
    as are citrus, mango, and avocado groves with the fruit hanging
    like Christmas ornaments.

    Someplace, (can't remember whether CA or Iowa) the fences
    actually had signs identifying the crop. Most of the area around
    Iowa State (Ames) has the specific experimental crop information
    (often corn, soy beans and sunflowers) on the fences. Interesting.
