Addie, I didn't know that (but I've been part of the walking dead for awhile now, so...)
Funny thing, the blueberries that you buy from California are from the area where my Mother lives, in the San Joaquin valley, "the food basket of the world"...
When I buy the fruits from the farms directly, they're are SOOOOO
much better than anything I get in the markets.
She emailed my this afternoon and told me that the berry farm will be done July 4th weekend and it's still questionable if they will open next year due to the drought.
California Peaches may by gone next year as well, no water, so the farms are doing their last pick this past week and "tipping" their trees, aka letting them die and then push them over and burning them... they can't afford to BUY water! I saw this last year, but not much, Mom says it's everywhere this year.
I might be making a fast car trip out there to grab a flat.
