Fruit & Vegetable Virtues
Today I am happy to present you with listings of my “TOP 5” vegetables and fruits, for your consideration. I won’t spend time extolling their individual virtues or attempting to convince you that my besties should be your besties. Instead, I am offering some pretty great quotes or aphorisms (and even one song) for each one. Enjoy!
