Tomato Field

The story of our commercial tomato growing has been told here.  Now I’ve found some photos of the field of newly planted tomatoes – still under hot-caps.
tomato 1That’s Kephart’s house across Oak Drive (now Oak Creek Drive).  Toyon Hill Drive now starts about where that telephone pole is just left of center.  Dozens of houses there now.
tomato 2That’s Mrs. Brown’s house on the right – she has her laundry hung out.  That tall (and dead) eucalyptus tree in front of her place fell in a storm.  I can remember playing on the fallen tree – they made fine forts!
