Not Even Ripe

08 Aug

Bongo looking away from the cameraI don’t believe it!








The prickly pear fruit isn’t even ripe yet and my person is taking pictures of it.

Hey person, don’t you know the color is much better when they’re ripe?

Let’s get moving!

      Patrecia, they do get a more intense color when they’re ripe. And they’re really juicy.

        Only the javelinas eat them whole. I let my person get the juice out of them and make stuff out of the juice.

        They’re spikey. That’s why I let my person get the juice out.

    Your person is prickly pear obsessed and -if my memory serves me well- they don’t even taste that good! Ah, but they do look nice though. Nicely captured with the ray of sun. 🙂

      Marina, a couple years ago my person made prickly pear ice cream. It was bright pink and did taste good. I even got some.

        I am obviously getting old… 😦 Well, maybe you’ll get some this year too!

    Ripe or not, those things look deadly. I’m glad your person didn’t try for a close up!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, you definitely have to watch those things. Even the fruit has pricklers.

      Fredrieka, I don’t think I’ll ever figure out what peoplewithoutpaws are thinking.

    Thank your person Bongo for me, I have never seen the unripe things before lol And person, do make sure you give Bongo extra treats to make up for all the idle time the photos take.

      Susan, I’m showing my person your message right now – for the extra treats. The prickly pear fruit actually starts out green and then gets red. But they will be a more intense red when they’re ripe.

    They look so delicious! Does she have any plan to make Prickly pear fruit ice cream, this year, too?

    • Bongo

      August 10, 2014 at 3:57 pm

      Kevin, I hope so. Last year the prickly pear didn’t have enough fruit, but I think they do this year.

    Sorry Bongo, I’m with her. You learn to play nice!

      Walktx, it’s just so hard when my person makes me stand around while she’s taking pictures. She doesn’t let me hang around and sniff for very long.

    I hope this means that she has other plans with ripe pear fruits and she will make ice cream from it for you.

    • Bongo

      August 10, 2014 at 3:59 pm

      Kolytyi, I’m hoping that too. But she could at least wait till the fruit is ripe.

      You’d better believe it Dalton. Sometimes I don’t know what to do with her.
