I have come to believe that by and large the human family has all the same secrets.

Colorado has farmer's markets, but hardly any farmers come. Instead, we have people selling chili mixes or trying to sign us up for Juice Plus. Bit ironic, that. But a stroll through Eugene's excellent Saturday market last week had put me in the produce mood. Before heading home I wanted to pick some berries for myself.
The parents knew just the place. The fruit hung heavy and succulent from the bushes...The owners hadn't even put up all their signs yet, so we were the first customers of the season. Got almost fifty pounds in less than two hours.
