Good insight into the work of farming and the rise of supermarket produce (produce which can be picked unripe, shipped long distances and still look good). Sad description of loss of heirloom varieties of fruit, but hope for revival of tree ripened local produce.
Masumoto a bit long winded and overly introspective, but just skim those parts.
