Week 12, day 1, Rubber Boot Journalist, digging into two articles this week, walnuts and finishing the kiwis. I hear kiwis are making a comeback after their heyday in the 1980s. Will be interesting to find out if that’s true. Also, made big progress yesterday on Falling edits. Here are a few pictures of kiwis.
Week 12, day 2, Rubber Boot Journalist is out on a photo shoot of walnuts and transcribing tapes on kiwi and walnuts.
Did you know there are over 280,000 acres of walnuts and it takes two to three years to even get the walnut trees from the nursery to plant because they are in such high demand?
Week 12, day 3, Rubber Boot Journalist hopefully out on a photo shoot today and still working on walnuts and kiwis. There is just an explosion of walnut acreage in northern California and in several counties it has become their number one commodity.
Week 12, day 4, Rubber Boot Journalist is on the road to a photo shoot for kiwifruit. Did you know kiwifruit is the most “nutrient dense” of all major fruits, and in 1992 it was listed as one of the top 10 most nutritious foods?
Week 12, day 5, Rubber Boot Journalist, wrapping up the kiwifruit article today and working on nut acreage article and trying to get a photo shoot scheduled!
