California fig harvest under way

This morning I visited Maywood Farms in Corning, which has 172 1/2 acres of organic figs and where harvest is picking up. In the photos, from the top: Lupe Reyes packs freshly picked figs into a shipping box; Arbelardo Arcos and Jose Arcos pick figs; and farm owner Bob Steinacher talks on the phone to someone in his shop. For my story on the California fig industry and this year's crop, check soon.
