Recycling on the farm

20140627_140759

 

Growing produce means that we have leftovers.  Blemished fruits, oversized vegetables, and some leftovers from markets leave us with plenty to recycle.  We have several options.  We can put it in the worm bin for them to create worm poo, a great fertilizer or we can feed it to the chickens to turn it into eggs.  This year we are also raising two female pigs.  They eat everything, but they have a special fondness for peaches and Armenian cucumbers.  It is hillarious to hear them squeal in excitement when they see the produce boxes.
