Agriculture a BUSY place in winter vegetable country

On October 28, I hit the road in the Phoenix area for a drive through through winter vegetable country in Yuma County on my way to Imperial, Calif. for the Western Farm Press-sponsored Fall Desert Crops Workshop scheduled the next day. I left early for the trip to travel through the winter vegetable production areas in Arizona's Mohawk and Wellton Valleys in Yuma County to see the fields, plants, machinery, and busyness of this major winter veggie growing area.

On October 28, this Western Farm Press editor hit the road in the Phoenix area for a drive down through winter vegetable fields in Yuma County on my way to Imperial, Calif. for the Western Farm Press-sponsored Fall Desert Crops Workshop scheduled the next day.

I left early for the trip to drive through Arizona's Mohawk and Wellton valleys in Yuma County to see the 'fields of green,', machinery, and the overall business of agriculture in action.

It was quite the ride down the dirt and paved roads. Agriculture was in 'full speed ahead' action with tractors, water trucks, and trucks hauling sprinkler pipes, which generated an air of excitement, plus a surprise along the way.

Enjoy these photos of winter vegetable production - desert style!
