So I was grocery shopping a few weeks ago and noticed a clerk gathering the wilted, older veggies onto a cart. I thought to ask the manager what they do with those - turns out, they put them out the side door every morning for anyone who wants/. them to take for free. He told me many area farmers stop by each morning. So this morning, I stopped by and got a bunch of strawberries (no mold, just very ripe) three bags of red leaf lettuce (which our rabbits love) and a bunch of soft apples. Anyone who is getting budget crunched might appreciate this as a way to make the feed budget stretch a little farther. Laura Hey?! How about a thread on "Money Saving Ideas" and keep it current? I bet there are ways to save on electricity, coop building, etc. In fact I've read them scattered in different threads. I wish I'd known about Craig's List before I built my first coop, I would have converted a child's playhouse instead.
