San Juan Bautista, Calif. On a hot, bone-dry afternoon -- not unlike the one last summer when something went horribly wrong here -- Will Daniels stands on the edge of a field, its neat rows of seeded soil stretching toward the horizon. Any day now, the first glossy leaves of a new crop will sprout, and within weeks, tons of fresh salad greens will be harvested, processed and sent to market. Daniels wishes he could rewind the clock to Aug. 15, 2006. Stop workers from picking that lethal crop.
