Expanding chokes and sprouts
E Says the Salinas Index: Last Sat urday a few of the Blanco farmers made a tour of inspection of the artichoke and sprout fields at and near Half Moon Bay. The party comprised Frank and Dave McFad-den McFad-den McFad-den and Theodore Cosseboom and took Frank Arata with them to act as interpreter, as most of the residents residents of that section do not speak English. Theodore Cosseboom, who owns about 200 acres in the Blanco district, is contemplating planting artichokes and Brussels sprouts on his land, as he believes that this county is well suited to the growing of these vegetables. The McFadden boys are at the present time uncer tain as to whether they will plant chokes" this year, but they are sure that the future of this county lies in the raising of artichokes and Brussels Brussels sprouts, as the climate here is well adapted to the raising of these and several other kinds of truck vegetables.
