Andy Griffin

Mariquita Farm: Hollister, California

Captioned elsewhere, "He's just getting started." Andy's knowledge and experience are comprehensive, and he is a masterful storyteller and a kick in the pants. Farmers are all different: some don't seem to like talking (Rick Knoll comes to mind) and some love it.

Andy loves it. If he doesn't, he's good at it, and I appreciate that.

He also loves to write, and his bi-weekly column in the Santa Cruz Sentinel rivals Wallace Baine's for the best writing in the county.

Julia Wiley, Andy's wife, is also worth an entry. Her story bears a separate space, as many of the wives of farmers do. Julia is in good company with those women.

None of these captions are complete. I hope you know that.
