Proud of Washington produce

October 4, 2012 

The Tri-City Herald's writing on the produce of Washington was the best I have ever seen. Thanks! I can see an award of some kind for a best series of an article.

I have sent, every year, for over 10-15 years a listing of Washington's rank in produce hoping that the paper would print it, but it did not happen. Your articles were more than I ever hoped for.

Did you know that Washington is the fourth-smallest state west of the Mississippi River, yet is No. 3 in produce behind California and Florida -- and that is for the entire U.S.A.? I have sent this listing to people and schools in California, North Dakota and Montana. Some by request.

Aren't we all proud of Washington?!

Thanks again for your individual work in producing these articles. I kept all but the Sept. 5th issue. Reason? Lost?
