The Watermelon Is Cheap

Some days I think I earn my pay more than others. Today was a steady stream of urgent issues. Luckily I think I handled most of them with only one spilling over until tomorrow. Of course tomorrow there will be new urgent issues to handle.

I went to the grocery store on Monday and loaded up on fruit. I bought a watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, cherries, apples, oranges and bananas. The watermelon was ok but not great. It was on sale for under $2 each because of the holiday weekend. The cherries were tasteless. Even the bananas were disappointing. I haven't tried the others yet. I miss good tasting fruit. Last Summer I went out to the Saturday farmer's market and all they had a some small apples. I could drive out to the farm an hour away and buy some real fruit when it is in season. I think peach season might be worth the drive.

Tomorrow is Friday and the weekend is almost here. Even though the days have gone by unnaturally slow, the weekend still got here fast thanks to the holiday. Only a few more days until payday!

ah, the disappointment if tasteless fruit, especially when it looks so perfect. Maybe orchard feature in your future plans?

Daizy, a little off topic, but with all the stuff about your nearly done mortgage, you have not yet updated the mortgage progress part of your blog. :(

Lizzie, that would be great and I could water it with greywater. Not much fruit seems to grow here though. Pomegranates do well. Citrus if it is protected from cold.

You are right Dave. I will do that soon.
