You know I live in Produce Heaven
For those of you who don’t know, I am very fond of fruits and vegetables. I think they are unrecognized jewels that are under appreciated. If I painted, fruits or vegetables would probably be one of my favorite subjects. Before leaving the states my 2 favorite jobs were when I helped to run the Farmers’ Markets in Northern Virginia and my last job, purchasing groceries for classes at Northern Virginia Community College. The last because I went to the Farmer’s Markets to buy the fresh fruits and vegetables. Living where we are in Tuscany we have access to beautiful fruit and vegetables.
I got this lot on Saturday, August 13 for 3 Euros or about $4.50. Haven’t had the pears yet. The figs were so-so, peaches are divine and the tomatoes are to die for.
Here is a plum collection I got a few weeks ago.
And I could have gotten this really cool watermelon in a jar!
