Growing up in Southern California I enjoyed the privilege of extended summers soaking up warm sun and an array of fresh from the field produce year-round. Locally we have several high volume crops from avocados and seedless oranges to bright leafy cabbage and big, plump, berries. In fact, when my family moved closer to the coast in middle school, I learned my new hometown was host to a very special berry event known as the California Strawberry Festival. This is no ordinary town festival, this is an event that has major streets blocked off and tourists flying in from outside states. It is an experience, to say the least. That's because Oxnard, California, and it's surrounding cities, are responsible for an estimated 1/3 of the U.S.'s strawberry production, yearly.
What Daughter Says: Summer is here, enjoy your favorite berries today!
