Something like 90% of the nations fruit and vegetables are grown in California’s Central Valley. Here is a simple calculator to determine how far you are from this fertile land:
- Buy a 1/2 pint of raspberries from your local supermarket.
- Count how many raspberries are moldy.
- Multiply the number of moldy raspberries by 250. This is your distance in miles from California.
For example, I am in Northern Michigan this week. I counted at least 9 moldy raspberries in the pack. 9 x 250 = 2,500. This is the approximate distance from my location to California’s Central Valley.
