Date harvest is underway in the Coachella Valley, which brings back memories of the date shops that once lined the main roads for tourists to buy dates, citrus, figs, etc.

I grew up in the Coachella Valley; my parents were "heavy earthwork" contractors, mostly building government projects, so I spent a lot of time on the back roads of the West. I'm a graduate of Vassar College (history major) and the Marshall-Wythe School of Law at the College of William & Mary. Retired from the Law, I now grow dates, sweet limes & figs on the family ranch, and am the State Senate appointee to the Coachella Valley Mountains Conservancy. View all posts by History Trover
