Spring Has Sprung in Yuma, Arizona, USA

This is our first spring in the Yuma, AZ area and it hasn't let us down.  Yuma is know for farming.  As you can see in the screenshot I took from Google map, the city is completely surrounded by green fields.  Some of the crops that are grown in the winter are all kinds of lettuce, broccoli and cabbage. But year round the top two crops are citrus, oranges, grapefruit and lemons, and dates.  I'm including a link to the latest visitors guide for Yuma, it's filled with tons of useful and interesting information. Click here for the guide, and click here to go to the Welcome to Yuma web page.
