I've written before about Freecycle and the joys of getting free stuff and the occasional chance to dispose of someone else's garbage (it's a double edged sword, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose). But the thing I didn't write about were the people. I have met several gals whom I now consider friends (hi Terri) and yesterday had the pleasure of meeting another (hi Kris) who not only is a member of Freecycle, she is also a gardener, she cans, and she's funny (of utmost importance to me). Plus, she BLOGS....go see her....now...I'll wait.
Kris came by to pick up peppers that I had no use for (I have canned enough to last several winters). Since jalapenos are one of the few things chickens can't eat (that would just be mean) the only place left for them was the compost pile and that just seemed wrong. So the peppers now have a purpose (she's making jalapeno jelly...wow) and I have a new friend....cool.
ps. and I didn't send you to her blog just to read nice things about me.....honest :)
