Strawberries

Another image from our travels through Watsonville and all of the strawberries. As long as I can remember, strawberry boxes always were from Watsonville, California. Even better when super fresh.

Artichoke

Traveling from San Francisco airport to Carmel, we pass through Watsonville, California. This is part of the bread basket of America and you can tell by the miles and mile of vegetable fields as far as the eye can see. The Artichoke plants were beautiful and the Artichokes are almost ready for picking.
