This past week The Girl and I picked 5 boxes of chicken scraps from Mr. Produce Guy. At first glance it really looked like quite a haul of fresh fruits and vegetables. But we soon discovered otherwise as we started to unload the boxes.
We were able to reclaim 2 bunches of fresh cilantro which will totally come in handy for fresh salsa.
But this box of fresh fruit was a total no go. Had the fruit still been left in it’s original containers I think we would have had ourselves a tropical feast. But since the fruit was just tossed into a box, I was a little uneasy about feeding it to my family.
The chickens however, had no problem eating all fruit and lettuce scraps.
And a few ears of corn as well.
This weeks fresh produce freebies:
5 ears of corn
3 bunches spinach
2 bunches of cilantro, and
4 heads of broccoli
What can I say? Some weeks are better than others, but you know what? I’ll take what I can get.
After all, free is free. Thanks you Mr. Produce Guy,
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.
