Week of May 11, 2020 Drop-Offs & Pickups
Another week in the books, and it's mid-May. It's been a bit of a wet and windy spring, but I feel like the oak trees all budded out over the last week or so, which means it'll be getting warmer and (hopefully) drier.
This week we were able to head to the church in town on Wednesday with 3 1/2 dozen eggs for their food pantry. The other pantry called me on Thursday AM for a food waste pickup, so I was only able to bring them a half dozen eggs (although tough to get them much fresher).
Going Thursday instead of my usual Friday pickup allowed me to clear out their stockpile of food waste before they opened up that afternoon, so happy to help.
The pickup this week was all produce, and a nice mix with lots of leafy greens like collard and spinach, which we hadn't gotten before. Beyond that, a lot of cucumbers, tomatoes, and then a bunch of odds and ends like onions, beans, snap peas, and cauliflower. There was even a pineapple in the mix, along with a gallon of milk. I'll probably use the milk to mix with some chick feed for the leghorns.
The weekend ahead looks to be the warmest yet this year, and I'm already mapping out the projects we'll take on. More to come on that in a future post!
