All The Makings of a Salad – Part 2

Now comes the fun stuff … the pretty pictures of what grew in all that dirt:-)

Young lettuce

Yuma grows up to 50,000 acres of lettuce a year!

Yuma grows up to 50,000 acres of romaine a year!

Head Lettuce

Red Leaf Lettuce

Yuma grows up to 3,500 acres of cauliflower a year!

Celery

Yuma also produces seeds and right now they are cultivating broccoli for seed and the bees are busy pollenating the plants.

Yuma grows up to 12,000 acres of broccoli a year. I’m not sure how much of it is for seed but we are pretty sure this field was seed broccoli. The bee hives are in front of the field and believe me I didn’t get out of the truck to take this picture because there were bees everywhere!

Okay, you have made it through day 2 of agriculture … only one more day to go, tomorrow is harvesting:-)

Until next time …
