J-Walk posted an item about an 8 Dollar Fruit. It reminded me of the watermelon in Labrador with the $55 price tag. Apparently it was a pricing error.
The [store] manager said that despite the price tag, the melon’s actual price should have been $38.
Would you pay $38 for this watermelon?

Basic foods I would never ask for:
- Fruit: cucumber. Yes, it’s a fruit, and I can’t stand their smell, texture, and taste. I like dill pickles, though. I’m not keen on watermelon, either. Maybe it’s their texture.
- Vegetable: pumpkin. Is that a fruit, too?
- Meat: liver. Maybe brain and kidneys, too, but I haven’t tried those.
Foods I Love To Eat:
- Fruit: blueberries and cherries.
- Vegetable: potaoes. So versatile! And onions. Lots of others.
- Meat: ham.
How about you?
When buying organic pays (and doesn’t) has three sections:
- Buy these items organic as often as possible. They list apples, bell peppers, celery, cherries, imported grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, potatoes, red raspberries, spinach, and strawberries; meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy; baby food.
- Buy these items organic if price is no object. They list Asparagus, avocados, bananas, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet corn, kiwi, mangos, onions, papaya, pineapples, and sweet peas; Breads, oils, potato chips, pasta, cereals, and other packaged foods, such as canned or dried fruit and vegetables.
- Don’t bother buying these items organic. They list seafood and cosmetics.
I buy organic items meant for my children, and if it’s on sale, I’ll buy most anything organic. The stuff is still expensive, though; I can’t afford to buy organic consistently.
