Born in the MidWest, married to a local boy from the islands. I have lived most of my adult life in Hawaii. Sharing mostly fun, recycled, upcycled how-to projects. Musings on design, style & life. I love to share my endeavors. My brain is kinda scattered as are my likes. Aloha!
The hubby went to the local grocers yesterday and picked up a few things. I asked for some fresh fruit because of the backyard fruit crops (three banana plants, a couple of papaya trees and a lychee tree) only the lychee are ready. (Listen, we live on an island, if it's not grown here or made here, we gotta pay extra to get it here. It's the ying and the yang of it all and I've come to accept that.)
Anyway, the hubs brought back three small plums for $1.64. You can't tell how small they are from the picture, but they are small. I can't complain to him because 1. I'm grateful he doesn't mind going to the store and 2. I'm grateful he doesn't mind going to the store. :)
Curious, I go online to see what everyone else is paying for fresh plums. I end up on a global trade site, Alibaba. They have lots of plum dealers.....I found some great prices for juicy red plums out of Turkey. The problem is I'd have to purchase 24 metric tons and I truly don't have the room. :(
Back to reality....the plums we bought are SOUR! Ying! :( However, our neighbor came over this afternoon and gave us a 2 lb filet piece of aku tuna freshly caught just a few hours ago. YANG! :) So tonight we're dining on sushimi and a little lightly fried fish. Yum! :)
P.S. What kind of prices do you pay for fresh fruit?
