and I had to include this little guy. He is one of many hanging around these parts these days.
Hi all, Lady Di here. I am also sharing a few pictures of my little corner of the world today. Amy always says she lives in the land of nowhere, well, I live in the "salad bowl". The Salinas Valley in California is a rich agricultural area where much of the produce you find in the local grocery store is grown. It's not just salad stuff growing around here though. If you have eaten a few Lay's Potato Chips ('cause you just can't eat one!) you probably consumed a chip made from Salinas Valley potatoes. What? You say. Aren't potatoes grown in Idaho? Yes, they are. However, they are also grown right outside my town. Believe me, I know. My husband manages all 2000 acres of them. They are right in the middle of harvesting right now, which means I am a married-single mom until about November (so I hope you are enjoying those chips). He grows potatoes for Frito Lay and In-N-Out Burger (yummy fries). So here are some pics of the fields and the surrounding valley where we live.

The second picture is a better picture of the center pivot in the potato field. They are automated and even send text messages to my hubby to tell him when they shut on and off at 2 in the morning and what not (lucky me).
Harvested potatoes being processed.
I hope you enjoyed.
