This week we received 4 boxes of “chicken scraps” from Mr. Produce Guy.
Picking up produce that has been deemed “unsaleable” each week has been quite the adventure. Mostly because it’s totally hit and miss. Some weeks we find ourselves swimming in strawberries and other weeks all the reclaimed produce nearly all goes to the chickens. You just never know what you are going to get. And I think that’s what makes it so much fun.
So this week when I saw the boxes I immediately knew the chickens would be getting oodles of lettuce. But I wasn’t expecting them to get nearly a case of corn.
What? A case of corn? How can that be? Well, under the husks we found:
But hey, it wasn’t all bad. Check out all this fruitalicious goodness! Free bananas, free avocados, free tomatoes, free apples and yes, even a few ears of free corn. Life it good when you are eating scraps!
I’m thinking this is about $20 worth of free produce. Not to shabby if you ask me.
Would you like to see what else we have brought home over the past year?
