My first job, at age 7, was planting and picking asparagus in Hart, Michigan. And it’s no wonder that was my first paying job…

Growing up in Michigan, my first job was planting and picking asparagus

Oceana County is the asparagus capital of the nation and home of the National Asparagus Festival.

Even though I toiled in the fields picking asparagus, I still love it to this day. One of my all time favorite veggies.

Now I live in California: Avocado country.

This weekend is the California Avocado Festival in Carpinteria, and we are heading there to enjoy the festivities, and eat avocado…everything!

Enjoy your Saturday! What are you up to today?

    I love reading the stories of your growing up years. You’ve had so many rich experiences. Most of my growing up was in apartments in the city with my two siblings and my single mom. She remarried when I was in high school and we moved into a little 3 bedroom home with he and his three teens.

Your thoughts? I would love to hear from you...
