The replenished fruit bowl

  1. Tsk tsk! Unshined apples and stickers still attached. And do I see a fresh lemon which will be left to dry like the others? The dried ones look quite interesting with the stripes they've developed.

  2. Ha...I like how you and R decided to leave the dried lemons in the bowl!

  3. When a mate from Australia used to have a fruit bowl when he was staying in Singapore, I would be horrified when he dumps them after 2 weeks. I asked if he eats them and he say 'no'.

  4. The fruit is getting better, Andrew. Though if you ask me, the grapes are still too expensive, as are those bananas.

  5. River, direct your fruit bowl complaints to Household Management. Not my department.

    AdRad, they have been there for some time now.

    MC, decoration only? The fruit we buy is cheap and sometimes of questionable quality. We do throw some out at times, but try not to.

    Elisabeth, don't even mention the price of tomatoes. If I am out and there are a very small number of tomatoes in a salad, I comment, tomatoes must have been expensive. At a friend's barbecue today, there were two tomatoes, each cut into four in a salad for eight people. I made no comment, as they are expensive.

  6. Hello Andrew:
    Phew! And not a plastic apple in sight - unless they all are!!

  7. Yum. A fruit bowl with variety always makes me feel healthy and well. I hate it when I don't have a choice of fruit at hand.

  8. JayLa, it is there. Buried perhaps.

    KN, if I did it seriously, I would have added grapes, kiwi fruit, strawberries and more. It is just our normal fruit for the week. Btw, apparently we in Australia are eating kiwi fruit grown in Italy.

  9. I imagine Van Gogh would have cut his other ear off for that arrangement.

    I thought the stripy fruit were figs!

    I bought Western pears on the weekend, which was very exciting. They're usually horrendsly expensive but my local supermarket was selling them four for 198 yen! They are delicious! V.

  11. Victor, clearly not my doing.

    V, Y50 each, not bad. I bet they are nicer that the rubbish we get here.

  13. I am totally in love with Mandarins at the moment, the honey murcott's are so juicy and amazing. Not fond of the pips though!

  14. Fen, sit outside to eat your mandarins and joyously spit your pips at your pet tiger.

  15. My customers and I have been having discussions about the price of tomatoes lately. none of us is happy about it. Usually under $4-$5 per kg, most often $2.98kg, now they're $8.98 kg!! Shocking. Several of my customers have said they might start growing their own, plant seedlings now and have plenty in time for summer salads.

  16. River, apparently in our southern states, this time of the year our tomatoes come from QLD. Something must have gone really wrong up there. We tried tomatoes in pots once. Cherry tomatoes were fine, but normal tomatoes, fail.
