This week when we picked up the “chicken scrap” boxes from Mr. Produce Guy, there were quite a few watermelons. And The Girl and I were VERY excited. We LOVE watermelon. And so do our pet chickens.
Back in April of 2012 when I asked our local produce guy if we could collect extra scraps for our chickens, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But now I do. Although the food is different every week, it’s still pretty exciting to see what we can salvage from the boxes of discarded produce.
If I had to guess, most people don’t want to bother with sorting through damaged fruits and vegetables to find a few gems. But we don’t mind.
After all, free food is free food, and not knowing what we are going to get each week, is just part of the adventure.
Life is good!
Would you like to see what else we have brought home over the past year?
If you have just stumbled upon this series and are wondering how I got all this food for free, you’ll want to read this story first.
