I don't know about California, but from where I come from a 4 acre farm would be what you call a "garden".

I figured most people would say Los Angeles or San Francisco, but what people really seem to think of when they think of California is Huntington Beach.

It also is close to Kendall Suare and Harvard Square which houses alot of the workers in biopharma.
Except that Davis has now become the most yuppie place in the city, not much blue collar left there.

Be that as it may, but itís hard to discredit these facts.


#1 producer of nursery crops.

#1 producer of avocados.

#1 in number of part-time farmers.

#2 in acres of guavas, pomegranates, limes, and macadamias.

#2 in farms with women as principal operator.

#5 in lemons.

#9 in strawberries.

#10 in egg-laying hens.

And it adds nearly $3 billion to the economy annually.

Size isn't everything. It's very easy to farm/garden in San Diego, and very difficult in Oklahoma. My sister lives in Oklahoma and has had such a terrible time with her garden that she's just about given up. If it's not the heat, it's the frost, the bugs, the hail, the deer, the wind, the squirrels, or the flooding. I've been there, and while all her neighbors have 2-4 acres, almost no one bothers to try to grow anything except maybe a pot of basil.

San Diego, on the other hand, is a farmer/gardener's paradise. With very little effort you can grow enough citrus fruits, avocados, and various vegetables on 4 acres to sell at the farmer's market, all year round.

Most Minnesotans may think of Int'l Falls when it comes to their own state stereotype, but I am pretty confident most people everywhere else think of the Twin Cities.

They likely think that because they hardly know of any other city.

Isn't that true for every state with one dominant city given the title of the thread?
