Almost forgot to discuss Alaska’s lime situation. It was easy to forget, since there is no Alaskan lime situation. We did not see (or smell or hear or Spidey-sense) a single lime the entire time we were in Alaska. Juneau organic supermarket with a good (for Alaska) produce section: no limes. Skagway farmers market: no limes. Restaurants: no limes. We ordered no cocktails, so maybe all the limes are squirreled away by bartenders for G&Ts, I don’t know. But the lack of limes up there would have been depressing if I hadn’t been so distracted by glaciers and whales and IPAs and whatnot.
Canada has limes!: 3/.99 cents at the Langley Farm Market in Lansdown Centre, Richmond. Good quality, from Mexico. No scurvy in Richmond.
Wheaton also (still) has limes: Mrs. Me recently hit Korean Korner (Viers Mill at Randolph), where she found six/$1, and good quality — a new local winner? Korean Korner is just slightly farther for me than H Mart, much less Hung Phat, so it is not in my rotation (or even really my consciousness) but I may have to go more often if this is indicative of KK’s overall produce or broader food selection.
Surely it must be indicative: everything we need to know, we learned from the lime index.
