For the past few days I've been thinking a lot about beginning a mono-island and decided to check out my local produce wholesaler Kodiak on Tuesday morning and buy a box of peaches. But I was out of greens and wanted to buy a few more pineapples which were on sale this week so I drove over to the grocery store this evening (Sunday). As I was buying more produce I saw an employee wheeling a cart to the back and at the bottom was a box full of peaches. I went over and asked him if he was throwing them out because they were too ripe, and he said yes. I asked if I could buy them and after chatting a little bit about raw foods he gave me the whole box for free! Most of the peaches are barely soft. They must throw away so much produce because thinking back all of the fruit I've bought there has been unripe. Its time to become best buds with Matt the produce guy.
I just had to share, because I was absolutely astounded. After spending all weekend thinking about mono-is-landing peaches I get an entire box for free!
