Picture This #274 ~ Fruit And/Or Vegetable

Well today was on of the last few harvest days for me. Still have walnuts and grapes to harvest, and that will be tomorrow. The pictures here are from what I was able to squirrel away for the next few months. Not too bad for cool morning.

cherryts
I am thinking salad with dinner tonight. Yums.

squash
A few of the different squash Butternut, and Kuri squash.

sunchoke
Nice pile of sunchokes. All this from two plants. Still have more to harvest but will leave it until after the first frost.

melon
A few melons to end the year with.
And a view of the green room where all went to storage. I think I will be making a few friends by passing a few of these out. I know they won't all get eaten here. Ha ha..

This is a great theme for harvest time, although all of my pictures are from Florida. Wonderful banner shot by Randall; looking at it I saw the detail of a man on the rightmost boat showing through the sail. It's just great and I am sorry I didn't see it when I first looked at the picture.

I love vegetables, but my pictures are all fruits.

Papaya
A papaya tree

Loquats
Loquats. These trees are popular in Florida, but I do not know if the fruit is edible.

Berry Cup
Berries in a dark chocolate cup, and chocolate on top.

Hi all I hope your having a great weekend? Congrats to Randall on a great header. Thanks also to Pat for this weeks theme.
I don't do a lot of still life work and the weather here it terrible for photography at the moment, so I am posting shots you have already seen from a similar theme earlier in the year.

I hope you still like them LOL ;)

Gr├╝tzi us dr Schwiitz - which means hello everyone from Switzerland, written in Swiss dialect.
Let's be fruity or veggy according to the shots you have.

Here is a mixture I found in the fridge - still life according to me

A selection from the local supermarket
Vegetable in the supermarket
The things you find in an English market - taken on my last visit to London. These seem to be yams

And asparagus peelings. If I was a good inventive cook I could have made a soup with them, but I threw them away

PICTURE THIS #273 ~ ALL THINGS MARITIME

All things Maritime, well I had to go dig around a bit for this one. It is a shame too. My grandfather was a shipbuilder and I spent countless hours playing, working (as a kid) around the boat house. Always by the water in most cases. But then to go and look for Maritime shots, I find I am coming up short. So I will do my best for this one Anders.

This was back in the early 80s in Singapore. The crew was heading out for a day of fishing.

Raising the sails, always took a bit of teamwork.

Smaller in size but there are the big boats too.

Oh yes let us not forget the Vikings. They were some of the early birds.

Now remember to keep the brass clean and a careful eye out for shallow water. and by all means have a happy sailing day.
