Fruitastic!

Although we love all times of year, spring and summer are the seasons during which we enjoy fresh fruits & veggies the most. Any goodies you find at a local farmer’s market (see a full list of Bay Area farmer’s markets here) are brightly colored, fragrant, and perfectly ripe. Even the typically hum-drum produce section at Safeway is bursting with color!

Our recent trips to local markets got us in the mood to find some fruitastic & veggie-ful inspiration, and we weren’t disappointed! We also found some funny photos of fruits and veggies to share because we love the fact that someone can look at an orange and say, “I’m going to make art out of that!” Enjoy. 🙂

Although it is possible to dye citrus fruits, they won't look at good as these! This image has been Photoshopped, but we still thought it looked cool.  Photo courtesy of www.welivedhappilyeverafter. blogspot.com
