It was a fantastic week in the reclaimed foods department at my local market. Fantastic!
We were able to salvage:
- 2 personal watermelons
- 2 cantaloupes
- 3 heads of lettuce
- 1 banana
- 8 apples
- 3 pears
- 6 pounds of potatoes
Wahoooo! Talk about a nice variety of free food.
The chickens were pretty happy with their chicken scraps as well. Fresh melon, soft pears, lettuce, and grapes too.
And wait, is that a wee bit of kale I see next to Hilda’s foot? Life is good.
Oh, and guess what? Yesterday, we collected 9 eggs. NINE! In one day. It appears our backyard egg farm is up and running again. I’d say scrambled eggs and at least 1 “breakfast dinner” a week are back on the menu.
Peace Out Girl Scouts, have an eggcellent day.
Would you like to see what else we have brought home over the past 11 months?
