A Truck Full Of Garlic
This truck is most likely coming through our area from Gilroy, California, which is considered the Garlic Capital of the World.
Gilroy is home to the Christopher Ranch, the largest grower and processor of garlic in the United States. The first Mr. Christopher to settle in the area was a Danish immigrant who grew plums that he processed into prunes. I wasn't able to learn why later the Christopher family switched to farming garlic.
There's a Garlic Festival in Gilroy every year, featuring all kinds of food cooked with garlic. Mmmm, this sounds so good!
I love garlic so I smile a happy smile when I see one of these trucks.
