This morning I visited my local farmers’ market, a favorite activity of mine. Here in California’s Central Valley we have access to a world-class assortment of the best fresh local produce. Today a new vendor had a booth. She was selling a variety of bacon. Naturally I was interested. I smiled and asked her to tell me about her wares.
