I don’t know about you, but I think it’s totally worth it to stop by my local grocery store once a week to pick up “scrap produce.” Even if we do end up giving most of it to our flock of backyard chickens, I still think it’s kind of fun.
One of these days I’m going to ask Mr. Produce Guy why they don’t put all the spotted bananas in a box and sell them for $0.19 a pound or something. My grandfather would ONLY EAT bananas if they were covered in spots. I’m pretty sure there is someone out there who would love to have them.
Bruised apples with nicks might be a harder sell though.
There were also 7 bags of mini peppers this week. We sorted though those too. I highly doubt anyone would have bought the bags at a discount and sorted through them though, out of 7 bags, these were the only salvageable ones.
Free fruit and vegetables? Heck yeah I’ll take it.
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.
