Jennifer Rocha, the daughter of immigrants and the first in her family to attend college, shared this powerful graduation photo and I can't stop thinking about it.

Rocha "decided to take her graduation pictures in the farm fields where she worked with her parents since she was in high school," she told ABC San Diego.

12. Oh yeahgreen bell peppers.

What threw me was that I thought the plants looked to tall for peppers.
Then I saw that there is a deep furrow between the rows.
Thanks for the added photos.
