My favorite part of any grocery store is the produce section. It's all so alive. And colorful! I love colors. I could be gay and sport mega pride based on the colors alone. Sometimes I go into a produce section just for kicks... don't need anything, don't even have any room in my fridge, I just want to see, and be one with, the produce. And it if it's time to buy? Oh my. I salivate with glee just to think of a basket full of herbaceous herbs, cruciferous crunchies, glorious greens, radical roots, and all the many far-out fruits.
I am a partisan of produce.
The edibles in the produce section are not the only reason to visit, because the produce section also has produce people! People who work the produce. I'm here to tell you that produce people are the jolliest and jovial of any people around. Think about it... have you ever met a grouchy produce person? No! You haven't it! Its it because they're surrounded by all the colors? Or is because they fondle and caress living things? Who knows.
I'm pretty sure my love for produce comes from my dad Mikey. A self proclaimed "Poor Farm Boy from Orem," he grows a magnificent garden. Watching his garden grow and eating his produce has always been my favorite part of summer/fall.
The produce and the produce people need a playlist. That's why today's Tuesday Tuesday tunes are for, and in honor of, the produce.

Notice how Tori Amos loves to write songs with produce? And that more people write about fruits than veggies? Why is that? Huh.
