Fresh Grapefruit...A Work of Art

Farmers Market was today, my favorite little old man was there with his pink grapefruit
5 for $1


I mumbled out loud as I was filling my bag, I can't pick these off a tree in Minnesota!

When I came home and took them out of the bag I thought...it's a work of art! That gorgeous grapefruit with the stem and fresh green leaves!


They were picked this morning, fresh off his own trees. I took every one he had!!!!
They are huge, yup, and I ate that little dried out blue bunny immediately after the picture was taken, he was there to get an idea of the size of the fruit, I'm sure you all know the size of Peeps.
(They don't stay soft and squishy here for very long.)

Now I'll go attack one of these monster grapefruits!

Oh My Goodness, Faye! Those look so good. When we lived in FL we had our own grapefruit and orange and avocado trees. Oh- to have that here! Great buy you made there!!!! xo Diana
