Instead we decided to visit a few other farms in the area as part of the Capay Valley Open Farm Day.
We started with a visit to Cache Creek Lavender, checked out the orchard at Gettleshtetl and picked pumpkins, cherry tomatoes and chilies at Capay Organic.
With the brown rolling hills and similar vegetation this part of California (like much of the state) feels so much like Australia. The gum trees everywhere, drought conditions and heat certainly add to the feel. If it weren't for the fact that we were driving on the opposite side of the road (and that the car was left had drive) we could've been back home. I'm always amazed at just how similar California and South Australia are at times.
It was nice to be out of the city for the weekend and the girls enjoyed visiting the farms but oh man, that heat really was a killer. Here's hoping that California gets some good rain soon and this drought comes to an end. It would be so nice to see this area green when we visit again next year.
