Ho, I wen get so caught up at da Farmer’s Market, and we still dea! Nah nah… hea da rest of da photos from dea.

Dis vendor had purple carrots too, and some snap peas. Now dem I can get hea in Oregon!

Moa broccoli and cauliflowah:

I forget wat dis was…

And try look dese salad greens! Get pua [flowers] in da mix!

Nani, yeah?

I thought was so pretty all dis togedda. But adunno if I like eat pua! I remembah small kid time when Keoki wen eat da hibiscus blossoms in our yard!

I love all dese colors! I wen take da photo even doe I know can get dis kine in Oregon…

Good thing us nomo room cuz I woulda bought out da whole market!

Had all kine mushrooms… da big Portobello ones almost all sold out!

And had so many pua nani!

We get all kine pua nani up hea, but I no could resist taking photos of alla color!

And moa artichokes!!

But check out wat stay right behind dem! U like see?

Almost dea.. but first try look dis lemon bush.

Oh my gosh! Dis vendor had da most nani orchids!! I like get one of each!

I wen get busy wit my macro lens.

Da smaller orchids was only $7.00 apiece. Da big ones was about $30.00 I think.

I think I wen get a litto macro crazy. But no can help!

And dis one too.

Oh yeah, and dis one too.

Oh, and guess wat? Dis one too!

Aftah so much nani-ness, so much variety of da California fruits and veggies, I wen get no small amount of pleasure seeing how expensive da blueberries stay!

Cuz hea in Oregon, I can get one whole pint foa about chree bucks! One entire flat foa about $22.00. So take dat, California abundance and long growing cycle!

    Ho, I miss da bluberries from da mainland. No can touch ’em heah, dey stay expensive like da artichokes. Orchids plenny cheap heah, and no can beat da papaya n’ poke. Lilikoi, too, when can find it.

    It’s a nice fall here on Oahu. Not too rainy, and at last the heat is over. Pretty skies, and breezy.

    Yikes! I’m such a veggie eater I certainly would go nutts over at that little market with all of the veggies grown almost to perfection. The rest of my family loves fruits, but I’m the veggie monster, so needless to say, your photos made me CRAVE a salad! I love your photo stories! They’re yummy!
