This week when I went to pick up the “chicken scraps” I was a bit relieved. For the first time in a long while the boxes were not stuffed with mounds and mounds of lettuce leaves. There were a few heads of iceberg lettuce this time around, but they were not salvageable.
However, there was an ample supply of watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes and strawberries to fill our refrigerator with. Plus, I was able to divide up the remaining scraps in to 3 boxes to feed not only our chickens, but Girly Girls and another friends as well.
This whole picking up free scraps gig is pretty sweet. I only wish more stores would let people pick up their discards. From reading your comments over the past few months, finding a local store that will give you their scraps seems to be pretty hit an miss.
All I can say is this, keep trying.
If you’ve asked the grocery stores and had no luck, try a local farm stand or the local farmer’s market at closing. Who knows. You may just get lucky.
Peace Out Girl Scouts,
I’m headed outside to get a little work done in the garden before it starts to heat up. It’s suppose to be 80 degrees here in the Seattle area. I hope I don’t get heatstroke.
Would you like to see what else we have brought home over the past few months?
