Here comes this week’s #zerowaste #groceryhaul 😊!
We bought so many squashes 🎃, the nice farmer started explaining how to best store them 🙈😇! Thanks so much @klippersorganics! Here’s her tip: store squashes and pumpkins in the coolest dry place in your home. Bedroom closets are a great place, because most people don’t heat up the bedroom during the day in winter. She told us one of her customers once forgot a pumpkin there, and found it in June of the following year. The pumpkin was still perfectly fine! Oh, and basements and close to windows (out of direct sunlight) are also great places.
We paid 🇨🇦 $61.50 (🇺🇸 $49.11, 🇪🇺 €41.78, 🇦🇺 $62.61) for everything on this photo. I feel that we pay less for produce when we approach winter, because a lot of the fall and winter produce is cheaper by weight, e.g., cabbages, squashes, and apples are cheaper than eggplants, bell peppers, tomatoes, or berries. Do you also notice you spend less on the same amount of produce when it gets colder?
