Wasting through the supply chain might be more of a problem in regard to food safety than an eventual competition with energy crops and other industrial commodities. But anyway, I presume that dumpster where you get your veggies might be cleaner than a regular dumpster.

Yep, they're small green bins with lids, which have a fresh bag in them every time they're used. Each bin has its own vegetable, they're not all together in a heap.

When I was in Scouts, someone tricked me into eating a cauliflower burrito, I got sick, and Mom decided I was allergic to cauliflower. Years later I very cautiously had some and did not experience anything worse than disliking cauliflower.

I once read some blog post where a lady said she went from one grocery store to another looking for food for her goat.

Then she fed the free fruits and vegetables to her kid.

I have since wanted to contact produce departments about collecting fruits and vegetables for Mom's compost heap, but it still has not made it to my to-do list.

My mother had a recipe for canned tomatoes that had you putting dried bread heels in the jar. I suspect to was to absorb excess moisture, but that's the way we ate tomatoes all winter.

It got so that I couldn't stomach tomatoes except in catsup. It was decades before I found out that tomatoes don't have to taste like soggy bread.

Mom used to tell me that if you did not leave the heels with the loaf, the outside slices turned into heels.

I never figured out whatever in the multiverse that was supposed to mean.

Bread heels? A West Coast term? I've never heard them called that!

I used the term as an attempt at clarity. We called them 'crusts'.
