Budget Month - Day 8
It's that time of the week again - fruit and veg week. It's a big harvest this time - with a lot of kiwis and bananas and mandarins. Specifically we have:
4 lemonaid fruit
1 three-headed pineapple (no really!)
and 1 custard apple (don't ask what I do with these*)
for vegetables I have:
5 giant space garlic cloves
4 sweet potato
1 purple lettuce thing (scientific term)
1 bag mushrooms
1 bok choy
1 savoy cabbage
1 bag roma tomatoes
4 green onions
I really really want to make some dried granola bars in my dehydrator this week. So I think I'll dehydrate the apples and pineapple for it. I am also considering a ratatouille... since, y'know, it uses pretty much a ton of veggies.
Also, today I got chook scraps, which my co-op gives for free if they have extras. I save a day of chicken feed with this. (3 days a month, 10% of their feed, $3.50 per month!)
They're in the backyardnow. So much space for them, it hardly feels like I have too many now.
