Five Photos/Five Stories, Fun Fruit, and the Weekly Photo Challenge: Creepy

Fresh Georgia peaches, figs, watermelon, honeydew… yum. If you crave fresh fruit, it’s a great time of year for food tourism. I love grapes and had been waiting for the return of creepy-looking Witches Fingers, even if they’re not locally grown. One day last week I found them…

Witches Fingers grapes

Thank you Fresh Market.

Take close look at these weird witchy-looking grapes. I already had plenty of fruit, so thought I’d wait until later in the week to get some. I knew I was taking a chance. They’re only available for a short time and sure enough, when I went back they were all gone.

This is my first Five Photos/Five Stories post. The Five Photos rules are: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph, and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge. With thanks to Jean at Social Bridge for nominating me for this blogging challenge, I’m passing the torch to Alexandra at alexandrarochman.com.

As for the Witches Fingers, I sense a lesson here — What was I thinking? — I should have hoarded some grapes.

What’s your favorite creepy fruit?

  1. I’ve never seen these kinds of grapes before, and they certainly look creepy :O They look a little bit like prawn heads that you peel off from the rest of the prawn. I didn’t they were grapes at first until I read your post.

  2. Sandy, just love your take on the challenge. The grapes look extraordinary.
    I’m trying to think about creepy fruit and can’t get wet blackberries out of my head. Never to be picked when wet because of creepy crawlies!

    • I used to pick wild blackberries in the country, and they were creepy-crawly wet or dry. They came on in just the right season for ticks. Somehow the gooseberries and raspberries were early enough we didn’t have as many crawlies. (oh, and I just remembered mulberries, always avoided because of little wormy things — ewww)
      Thanks again for the challenge!
