Fat of the Land
I was struck this morning on my ride to work (I drive approx. 30 miles from Newberg to Salem, mostly through beautiful farmland in the heart of the Willamette Valley) of the agricultural variety and bounty of the land here. What a delightful fulfillment of Gen. 2:15. The earth's potential is brought forth.

Here is a list of what I see growing on any given morning:

Filbert and Cherry Orchards

Vinyards

Nursery stock

Wheat

Dairy cows and sheep at pasture

Grass (this area is a big into grass seed)

Hops

Assorted vegtables

Mint
