I don't but my mother in law has a garden and also gets fresh produce from the Amish and cans alot.





Spring is finally here, the lovely pink blooms on the "spray" tree outside my window are gone leaving a beautiful willow.

Rob talking about frost made me remember this topic about snow lol. I forgot to mention that even if LIKED having snow on the floor right where I live, it's a good thing that we don't as that would mean heavy crop damage which would turn to less fruits & vegetables available to the country, not to mention high prices for them.

Here are some interesting facts: :fyi:

California is by far the most productive agricultural state in the country. With 4% of the nation’s farms, California generates 13% of U.S. farming receipts. In 2001, California generated nearly twice as much revenue as Texas, the next most productive state.

California grows more than half the nation’s fruits, nuts, and vegetables, producing more than 350 different crops and commodities. The state leads the nation in production of more than 70 specialty crops. It also leads in agricultural exports, shipping more than $6.5 billion in products around the world. Canada is the number one destination for California’s exports, followed by the European Union and Japan.

In California, the Central Valley generated 57% of the state's agricultural output in 2002. Six of California’s top seven agricultural counties are located in the Central Valley (Fresno, Tulare, Kern, Merced, San Joaquin, Stanislaus). If the Central Valley were a separate state, it would rank first in agricultural production in the nation.

The unique combination of climate, soils, and water in the Central Valley is a major factor in its agricultural productivity. Because the Valley’s climate is mild most of the year, the growing seasons are longer. This condition in turn allows farmers to produce more crops than in other states.
