Finally! Fresh Produce

We finally got in a shipment of good fruits and vegetables.  Of course the prices are a bit high.  But after a few months on the island you just don't consider price anymore.  You are just happy to have anything fresh and not rotting.  This climate makes it very difficult for the stores to keep good fresh fruits and vegetables.  One of the many challenges of island life.  But as our missionaries like to say "it's all good".  We spent $52 on two bags of produce yesterday and were happy to get it.
 The grape fruit on the left just got here and it is already showing signs of rot.  Typical.
 Apples and pears seem to make the ocean voyage to the island in good shape and they keep well.
Bell peppers (red, green and yellow) stay fresh fairly well.  We freeze peppers and they keep for quite a while.
