My Thanksgiving turkey!

This week it was 7 or 8 cases of pineapples, a bag of cucumbers, a case of pears, 4 canteloupe, 6 cabbages, some tomatoes, lemons, mangoes, and grapes. Last week it was a few watermelon halves, a half case of limes, about 6 cases of pears, and a box of coconuts. I give most of it away, we eat as much as feasible, and the rest becomes compost. Some is bruised or got too cold, mind you it isn't all perfect and lovely, although some of it is. I get the leftovers from a weekend produce stand about a mile from my house. We hardly buy any produce ever, we also garden a great deal. Still getting lettuce and arugula out of the garden, that is sort of free, it was all grown from saved seeds.

I also got 4 pumpkins out of a dumpster while out campaigning, and got 2 straw bales and about 10 little pumpkins and gourds on freecycle. Made a lovely harvest/Thanksgiving display in my front yard with that. Haven't been to Walgreens yet this month to get free things there.
