Berry Maddness

Diana and I spent some time today considering going to the Monterey Bay Berry Festival this weekend, but before we ruled it out because we didn't want to spend so long in the car getting there and back, we discovered that there are actually 2 competing berry festivals this year: the Berry Festival at the Santa Cruz Fairgrounds and the Strawberry Festival in downtown Watsonville.

Ooooo intrigue! Here's the lowdown: Jamming at the Watsonville Berry Festivals. It's a sordid tale of gang violence, politics, racism, and berries.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
