Nice little treat with my book. But I was so focused on the treat and forgot the book. Lol this will be a quick read. I found it while B&N was closing over the holidays🖤 let‘s hope the book is as good as this. #caligirl #tajin #fruit #spicysaturday

Kenyazero The best kind of treat! Haha, worth forgetting to read while enjoying. 1w

One of the prompts for #Nonfiction2021 was “sunshiney or yellow,“ and what's more yellow than a banana? I've been interested in food justice issues for a long time (the pic is a banana article I wrote in 2002) and Koeppler does an excellent job of tracing the history and diversity of banana varieties, tackling the incredible history of corporate domination and exploitation involved, and looking into the risky future of the current popular strain.

Every single banana from the week‘s harvest is carefully skinned, then segregated, so that one breed doesn‘t mix with another. The peeling at HFIS is done by women, paid $10 a day, about double the Honduran wage. Aguilar says they are better at precision work than men. “They handle the fruit more gently,” he told me, “and they have better handwriting.” Each fruit has to be logged so its success or failure can be tracked through the growing cycle.

In 1952 [Guatemalan President Arbenz] issued decree 900. The law would redistribute land to local peasants. It allowed the government to confiscate any farm over 223 acres with a key condition: the land had to be unused. Nearly a quarter of a million acres were divided among 100,000 families...[United Fruit] hired a newspaperman to write a story that would “investigate” the links between Guatemala and the Soviet Union.

BarbaraBB I read this book a long time ago but never forgot about it. I learned so much. 2mo
BarbaraBB I realize it‘s another book. But about the same subject (the banana war). 2mo
Singout Yes, it‘s fascinating. I need to talk to my friend from Guatemala now. I picked it for the “sunshiny or yellow” prompt for #Nonfiction2021 and am glad I did! 2mo

I haven‘t had much reading stamina this past week. I adored the tagged book. So cute and funny. Learned about it from an online pal recently. 🦇 🍒 🍐 Here are some I‘ve read with my kid this week. +91 pts #Scarathlon2021 #TeamSlaughter

1. Apple cider!!
2. Reese cups
3. Nah, not really into Halloween. But I do love autumn decorations in general - apples, pumpkins, leaves!!
4. The tagged book is a field guide to apples & I love it!!
These last two seem vague 😂 Fall-related nonbookish items??
5. Journaling stuff, candles, & apples!!
6. Honestly... mostly books themselves!!

Thanks for the tag @EadieB !! #Itsfallyall

EadieB You‘re welcome! Thanks for playing! 4mo
