Who will it be???

The avocado makes me think California.

That and the terrazo tile looking floor makes me think that it may be you?

My avocados are still hanging on the tree and probably not pickable till spring. That is if the miserable rotten squirrels will stop taking small bites out of the rock hard fruits which leads to rot....

Nope. Not me, but I agree it's someone in California. Maybe Frog Princesse? Or Blue Dolphin? As I recall, she's on the Central Coast, around San Luis Obispo, I think. Shel B maybe?

That's Haas avocado country, though. At least Santa Barbara County has loads of orchards.

Is anyone in or around Ojai? They have a microclimate there and can grow bananas without a lot of coaxing.

Lancaster/Palmdale area, perhaps? I get the impression Andie can grow just about anything.

Maybe. It could be an older picture. It's starting to get colder there in the valleys.

I don't think it's California. Unless, as anabelle said, it's an older picture. Tomatoes are still in the farmer's markets but haven't seen many eggplants lately.

My CSA had avocados recently but not that variety and the last sweet corn was a month ago, in the boxes we got the week of Oct 14.

Anyone in Mexico? Nancy in Pátzcuaro?

You're being a little coy, heidih. I rather think that waterside picture could even be from almost anywhere in the world, so it is not really useful as a "hint", unless one actually recognized that particular view in a particular locale, and that would need the viewer to be specifically cognizant of that particular view.

hints need not be that 'useful' wait until All is Revealed, then they will fit

after all, we pretty much know this isnt going to be Montana.

By "what coast" I meant to point out that there is land on two sides.

Yes. I agree it looks like Florida and the avocados make sense now.

Could it be Dave the Cook, vacationing in Florida? I could be mistaken but I think I remember past blogs where he vacationed there.
