This week there were 2 boxes of chicken scraps to pick up from Mr. Produce Guy. At first glance I wasn’t sure there would be much to reclaim. But after I lifted up the bags of grapes and knew I had hit the jackpot.
Mama Mia! Holy tomatoes batman!
We did have to toss a few tomatoes but we made several batches of homemade tomato sauce with the rest.
There were also lot of of salad greens but strawberries and other veggies were tossed into the leafy greens. Instead of digging through them we decided to give the entire box of salad to the chickens.
2 tubs of Organic Girl super greens were free because of the sale date stamped on the container.
A huge box of tomatoes, organic salad greens and grapes. Not to shabby for free if you ask me.
Have YOU been successful trying to get your local grocery to give you their scraps? Does your store donate their extra produce or is it tossed in to a dumpster?
Mavis wants to know.
Would you like to see what else we have brought home over the past year?
