On the drive down the 126 tomorrow, between Piru and Filmore, check out the farm on the right that has just put acres and acres of white netting over thousands of trees. That's a seedless tangerine orchard where seeds are showing up in the fruit from a neighboring valencia orange orchard. there is actually a quite war going on in the central valley where the majority of the seedless tangerine crop is being grown because the bees are cross polinating between other farms of valencia oranges. the tangerine farmers are at war with the orange farmers and with the bee keepers... the down to earth and grounded farmer cliche that Zach points out sounds a little more like the reality of flying off the handle and blowing sky high...
