Tomato harvest is in full swing here in the Central Valley of California.
That means tomato trucks are out and about transporting the harvest to the processing plants.
Luckily tomatoes don’t come flying off on the interstate, but you will often see them at intersections or on highway ramps where the trucks turn while going a bit fast.
The trucks with the two hoppers are very long. Luckily I have not had to pass any on the two lane highway I normally take. However, I feel the effect of them as they lay down a lot of dirt on the road as they leave the fields and head to the processing centers.
These tomatoes will most likely be canned. More than 90% of canned tomatoes are grown in the Central Valley of California. This is just part of the process that ends with canned tomatoes at your local grocery stores.
