When I took a photo of the so sweet sweet potato that South Africa abounds in, I saw that the outside color is not dark brown as I remembered. It is more reddish on the outside:
As I did say, the inside of these potatoes is white:
Please note the greens in the center of first photo. This is salad vegetable that Heaven Admin is growing here. Here the name of the salad green is rocket. In the U.S., it's called arugala.
Here the fruits and vegetables are truly divine. From what I see, most or all of the vegetables sold in South Africa are local or, at the least, not far. Vegetables aren't imported from California as in the United States where we get all fruits and vegetables year round. At first that seems like an advantage, but from what I've read, it's better to eat foods in season. This makes sense to me. Nature provides certain foods in certain locales at a certain time, and this is the time nature meant for us to eat these foods.
I have felt this way regarding colors of the seasons. When yellow flowers bloom in the spring, we benefit from just seeing the yellow. And, of course, all the green. In autumn, the red leaves must do something good for us. In winter, the white snow. That's my theory anyway.
Indian Ocean Update
This morning, the Ocean I see from my window is gray, and the sky is a lighter gray. Who knew that gray is so beautiful! And that there are so many shades of gray!
