Food Waste Friday

FoodWasteFriday Every Friday, Kristen over at The Frugal Girl posts a picture of her food waste. She invites other bloggers to join in her effort to save money and reduce the amount of food that gets thrown away in our country every day.

It’s been a while since I participated, so I’m certain things have been thrown away in between now and then, but this is what exists this morning: two very wrinkly and sad green onions.  We did use a couple of these when they were already in the wrinkly phase (just peeled off the outer layer), so a valiant effort was made.  Now, however, they are too far gone.  The good news is they are going into the compost and feeding this summer’s veggies!

I need to be consistent with Food Waste Friday – if not, I’m never going to be able to keep up with it.  I also think it works well in conjunction with the Independence Food Days Challenge.  Wish me luck!

  2. Whether or not you are consistent with Food Waste Friday, it looks like you’re doing a good job. The Independence Food Challenge looks interesting. I grew up doing all of those things and we grew most of our food. While I highly believe in the principles, I am happy sometimes to buy prepared things. I think that I’ve had too many late nights of canning or freezing food after it was picked and too many days of hoeing and picking to want to do much of it now.

    No, wait! Those green onions are still alive and can be saved! Stick them in the ground, and in a few weeks, they’ll be good as new–and even bigger! You’ll have green onions to cut all summer long. 🙂
