I'm poor and Canadian and it's winter.  

I love fresh fruit.  What happened to food prices?!

The past couple of years they have gotten so bad and food quality hasn't been great either.

It's March and choices for affordable fresh fruit have dwindled down imported oranges from California/Florida and Apples with the occasional USA plums (which I hate).

So yea.  That's my whiny sick of winter want some damn melons and berries rant.


*I'm allergic to bananas

I hear ya. We have plenty of imported produce available but it's so expensive right now and looks rather sickly. I can only use maybe half the berries I buy even just days after purchase.

I am craving watermelon! I know what you mean I am getting sick of those fruits too. Everything else is so expensive. Every now and then I splurge for grapes but am disappointed with their taste. Haha

No pineapple? Wow, I picked up some catalope for .49 cents a pound, some strawberry cheap. Etc. I love living so close to farms in California. Cheap and fresh all year long.

I am missing mangos, cucumbers, pomogrands,....I am sure there are more, those are off the top of my head.
