I left my hometown 35 years ago for California and never looked back. Until now, that is, and I find myself back in a town that hasn’t changed much since I left. It’s a long story. Now that I’m here, I have some burning questions. Where are the Meyer lemons? What do you mean I can’t start planting until next spring? Why are there canned mandarin oranges in my salad? Join me as I attempt to answer these, and many more questions that occupy the mind of an avowed California locavore transplanted in the Midwest.
