When people hear Walla Walla, most think of onions or wine, two commodities grown in this region. To my eyes, driving through Walla Walla earlier this week, I saw wheat, wheat, and more wheat. I did see one small onion field on our way in, and I wish I would have stopped for a photo. I saw that the onion festival was in June, so maybe that crop has an earlier harvest then I realized. I was trying to find a vineyard (tasting rooms abound!) but missed that too. Next time I visit, I'll need to make more time for touring around the countryside! Loved all the wheat, with harvest just beginning on a few fields, and this terrific little grain elevator, deep in the fields.
