As the weather warms, we’re seeing a lot of changes for the better in the produce world.

California farms are moving from the desert region to southern California, and experiencing much improved yields and quality.

Post St. Patrick’s Day cabbage demand has the market at a lower level.

Peppers, squashes and beans are all coming into good numbers in Florida, and the farmers are eager to sell the abundance they’re harvesting.

Mexican tomato fields have finally dried out enough to start cranking out the fruit.

Last weeks’ rains in Mexican onion fields shut down production, tightening up supplies a bit until things dry out.

Quality and availability remain very good on Chilean grapes.  Large, crisp berries are the rule, especially on red grapes.

Q:  What does a frustrated ear of corn say?
