Caching and Farming

Donna met Toni & Dave when we were in Quartzsite and she did a power cache with Margie & Rhonda. When they went back to finish it they hit a huge flowerpot in the road and wrecked their car. Since they had no transportation in Yuma (they towed their car here) we offered to pick them up and we had a couple of days of caching with them.

We went out to the Barry Goldwater Bombing Range (had to get permits & notify them). We got 46 caches. Found all that we looked for.
One was in this wash.
It was shady, so we decided to have our picnic lunch there. No, we didn't drink that box of wine on the ground. It was our music and the first song was "our" song so we danced. We stopped at a restaurant on the way home and had a great day with them.

The SKP's at Kofa planned a tour near El Centro, CA. It was a tour of a research farm.A slide presentation told us a lot about vegetable growing. The Imperial Valley and Yuma area is the produce capitol. The vegetables you are eating tonight probably were grown here.

There was a cooking demo and sampling. 

 We liked this cute wagon. 

After the lecture we met at the patio for a huge salad luncheon 

then it was off to the fields on trams. 

We rode for a couple of hours to various plots and got off and picked vegetables. We were given huge bags to fill with broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage. radishes and lettuces.

Bob learned how to suction the hoses to irrigate the fields
 along with a few others.
