......you should be reading Cultural Offering everyday:
"Today is ripe. It calls to be plucked from the stem and eaten up. Though some may try, it cannot be canned or jarred or otherwise stored away. It is at its peak and will be no good tomorrow. It gets no better than it is right now and is bursting with anticipation. Bite in. Let the juice roll down your chin. Enjoy the whole thing today."
