….California, salad bowl of the world,
rows upon rows of veggies lay curled,
ready for picking or maybe just planted;
all due for market, packed not slanted.

Eighty percent of the lettuce consumed,
once grew here in the most fertile loam,
P\picked be farm workers, most who speak Spanish,
Quick, eat it all up, go on, make it vanish.

Home of the John Steinbeck museum,
his home town here also, you can see them,
a mild climate and beautiful city,
here in "veggie valley" so pretty.

Mystry destination
