Nothing goes to waste here. The water used to wash the vegetables waters the plants. Scraps are given to the chickens or dogs – even my used teabag was dried and spread over the plants.
We were given extra spinach today from the Otse Home Based Care. Ma was very excited. But we had so much, and since we don’t have a refridgerator, and we must use it all – I chopped it all and we placed it outside to dry.
Word of the wise – wasn’t all that great when cooked after. But hey, we didn’t waste anything!
