Another week, another couple of boxes of ugly discarded produce we hauled home because nobody wanted to pay full price for them at the supermarket. This week Mr. Produce Guy stuffed our reclaimed boxes full of all sorts of goodies for our backyard flock of chickens. There were practically 2 boxes filled with just greens! Which was totally awesome because chickens love lettuce, cabbage and pretty much anything else with a crunch.
Do chickens love bananas? Not so much. And to tell you the truth, I’m running out of ideas on how to use up all the bruised bananas we get for free each week from Mr. Produce Guy. A girl can only drink so many smoothies you know.
Those radishes and sweet potatoes will come in handy this Thanksgiving.
Here’s the final tally:
- 10 million pounds of bananas
- 4 bunches of radishes
- 4 jalapeno peppers
- 3 yams
- 1 orange pepper
- 1 pound mushrooms
- 3-pack of Romaine lettuce
- 2 bunches of cilantro
Not bad for free if you ask me.
Do you have any good banana recipes? I think I could use a few more ideas on how to use up all those ripe bananas this week.
Have a great day everyone,
Would you like to see what else we have brought home over the past year?
