Fruits, Vegetables and Creatures of the Night

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 11:06 pm

These last 2 weeks we’ve been in the woods, we’ve found some good stuff. About 6 pairs of shoes thrown out behind a thrift shop, about 100 hangers behind a well known department store thrown out and 2 bags of lemons, potatoes, onions and carrots. The potatoes, carrots and onions could feed a person if they were starving, even if you had to make vegetable soup. But since we’re not there yet, I can put in a nice roast, with some onion soup mix, potatoes, onions and carrots and make a very good beef stew.

Last night I was doing dishes late. I kept seeing this light go off back and forth in our back room. It was a firefly in the house! I think they are so cute. We used to catch them as kids and put them into jars.

Then later on, a beautiful red and black butterfly flew into the house. It just fluttered about and went off somewhere.

We now have 2 cats who are constantly at my door. One is dark black color with green eyes and the other one is a yellow cat with yellow eyes. They’re both beautiful creatures.

We have a large luna moth on our front porch ceiling right now. She’s been up there since last night, just hanging like a bat. She’s a beautiful creature.

Such is life now at my freegan rural abode.

  1. That is nice. What great finds and beautiful creatures. You are lucky to find anything at all. Many people are out now. There was a beautiful black butterfly with teal circles on its wings flying around today.

  2. The produce department of any grocery store throws away a terrific amount of food everyday. You might ask the produce manager for his discards, if you wish.
