chokes and sprouts harvest
E Tl Santa Cruz artichokes are beginning beginning to appear in the market in large quantities and the work of harvesting harvesting them along the coast is already in progress, and outside shipments are now under way, which ' means this agricultural industry will give employment to many for a number of months to come. The vines are prolific bearers and their hardiness in standing- standing- any kind of weather was put to the acid test during the November November freeze of last winter when the vines, seemingly dead, revived in a short time and are today as strong as ever. With more bearing acreage all along the coast, the prospects for -a -a bumper crop never looked better. The artichokes have a healthy appearance appearance and a quantity of them exhibited exhibited by Majors Brothers at the recent county farm bureau fair in the Bonny Doon booth attracted much attention. In addition to artichokes, a fine lot of Brussels Sprouts are now being being raised along the coast and these were also exhibited at the fair.
