Peppers and Mushrooms

Do you know where your food comes from? These peppers and mushrooms are grown near Vancouver, BC.

Long rows of yellow peppers.

Peppers in several stages of development.

Beautiful healthy plants with yummy peppers ready for picking.

A simple pepper bloom.

Have you ever wondered where those mushrooms in the grocery store come from?  Well, they don't come from a log out in the deep woods somewhere.

Almost ready for harvest.

Waiting to be weighed and packaged for shipment.

Soon to be found in a market near you.



  1. Now that most foods list country of production,I always check to see. The peppers and mushrooms look so fresh and healthy. I prefer locally grown, but sometimes that isn't always easy to find. Thanks for visiting. I was going to reply to your comment on my post, but couldn't find your email. Anyway, thanks for visiting and commenting. :)

  2. Wonderful photos! It all looks so fresh, clean and neat. During the summer, we always support our local farmer's markets. Thanks for sharing this tour.
