I never have liked bananas. I buy them all the time in the past two years but I sure don't like them. They are rarely tasty. The ones I get, the two big brands...I don't buy the off brands...and usually banana colored mush sticks with almost no flavor no matter their peel color. Yellow, spotted, you name it. But when you get a really truly GOOD one, you see why people like them. I got a bunch a week ago with the label from the "D" corporation...I won't spell it out. THE best I have had in probably 5 years. Sweet, perfect texture. It's a crap shoot each time I buy them. Usually not in my favor. Now what I am leading up to is: Fruit flies. Winter, any season at all, when bananas or peaches come into the house, there are swarms of them.
I finally got a clue and googled making a home made fruit fly trap. It WORKS! I had a good dozen within half an hour. I saw one more a few minutes ago that didn't get into the trap over night. I'll take 1 over all I had. I about don't want to buy fruit that has to stay out of the fridge. Even with my trap. That vinegar smells awful in the whole house.
I am hoping the price of grapes goes down soon. They will of course as they become more in season. Speaking of which, In February no less, a grocery store here in town had out boxes and boxes of lush looking red strawberries. I opened a box and they were hard as baseballs and had no smell at all. So I guess they were gassed to turn them red as they do with tomatoes grown in hothouses. Those two produce items were hard as baseballs and not worth the high fee charged. If they were giving them away, I wouldn't have any. I noticed the strawberries went from $3.98 a box to .50 cents. I think no one wants them even for .50 cents. Tasteless and hard. Give your money to someone who needs it instead. :-)
Here is one I took and posted to Flickr a few days ago. I swear, it took 25-30 attempts to catch him still enough for a second, so as to take his picture. Always moving. This was taken with my Nikon DSLR, with a close up lens. I only carry my big camera when I am on a quest for macros. Or landscapes. Biggafy if you like to see him in detail.
