Peaches – Monday market

Looking at the Peaches

Koreans have this habit of eating fruit that I wouldn’t classify as ripe. Of course, it’s cultural but when I bought a ‘box’ of delicious looking peaches I discovered they were like cricket balls – hard! They do the same with persimmon. Yea, I should have poked them before purchase but didn’t. I like peaches soft and juicy. Currently, they’re sitting in my fridge in the hope they might ripen. Putting them on the window ledge is out of the question as it will attracts those annoying little ‘day flies’ which prevent you leaving any fruit or vegetable peelings in the bin for more than a couple of hours. White peaches are really delicious but I haven’t seen any this year and they are always more expensive.

The tomatoes are even bigger than a few weeks ago and are now bigger than the first of the green apples – perhaps it’s because of all the rain.

      Oh my God! Are you a stalker? Please tell me your not a student – that would freak me completely as I don’t really hide who I am here. I live near E-Marte. Thanks

    by student, u mean one of the students u teach at hakkwon? if that’s the case, the answer is “hell no!”

    like i said, i’m just a twentysomething laymen who happened to visit your blog and who realized (by reading some of the posts) you’re in my neighborhood. so, i decided to say hi. that’s all.

    the truth is, i ain’t a stalker, man.
