In Vino Blogitas

Drove up the 5 most of the way to Napa... saw absolutely nothing worth mentioning. Well, that's almost true. For a while, we saw little red things on the shoulder. They look like... smashed tomatoes. And then we passed our first tomato truck, hauling two giant hoppers of tomatoes. It would hit a bump in the road, and a thin trickle of tomatoes would leap off the back of the truck. The ones that landed in the lanes were quickly turned into paste, but the ones on the side were mostly okay. We passed 11 tomato trucks, and we estimate that amounts to close to 2 million tomatoes.
