3 things in there are still alive...and moving!

Is a mushroom a fruit?

Maybe it should be called a scary fungus salad.

It needs dressing (Have you no morels?)

I just got food poisoning last night:

So, right now, this photo is not cool!

Oh, I dunno about scary. It has a certain appeel.

Bryan C said...

Mmm mmm! There's nothing better on a hot summer day than a nice big bowl of compost salad.

HDHouse said...

sweetie pie...he made a conservative out of a middle of the road person...skip the pie.

That would be welcomed by the chickens. If you had chickens.

Maybe you should get some. Think of the blogging opportunities on slow days.

George Grady said...

What a waste. You could have made some banana bread.

You could have made some banana bread.

With chocolate chips. I have some at work with me today!

traditionalguy said...

Chiquita banana says do not eat banana peels somewhere on the wrapper...what there is no wrapper? That is weird.

Flexo said...

At least it looks better now than it will after its been eaten (at least a little better).

Mad City Chicken Law: "Today it is legal to have 4 hens (no roosters) in a coop, no closer than 25' from the nearest neighbors living quarters."

It's a little side dish for bunnies at the "Cute Bunny Cafe."

Doe and fawn.

Watch out!

Beth said...

compote compost

Luke Lea said...

I presume those are the parts that DIDN'T make it into the salad?

MadisonMan said...

Today it is legal to have 4 hens (no roosters) in a coop, no closer than 25' from the nearest neighbors living quarters.

Yesterday and tomorrow, too.

are those banana peels in there?

(If so reminds me of this scene. And at least this banana wasn't "over-ripe")

peter hoh said...

I made the mistake of letting one of those salads brew under my sink for a couple of days. We're still trying to chase away all the fruit flies.

I'd like video proof that someone ate that hog slop.

Freeman Hunt said...

To kill fruit flies:

(Did I learn this from somebody on here?)

Put apple cider vinegar in a cup.
Add one drop of dishwashing liquid to break the surface tension.
Leave out where the flies are.

Works extremely well. You should have a bunch of dead fruit flies at the bottom of the cup by the next day.

As long as that doesn't go into the hydrangea bed.

Fred4Pres said...

Allen S: Can't blame the doe for protecting the faun, but she would be smarter to not leave the faun along a suburban street.

Both the dog and cat took a bit of a beating didn't they. The dog is probalby saying, "Jeeze Louise, beat the damn cat, I was minding my own business!"

Oh wait, I am anthromorphizing again!

Perhaps some of Meade's fruit salad would mellow her out.

Fred4Pres said...

Oh oh, is stuff like that bad for hydrangeas? I hear banana peels are great for roses.

Freeman;

You forgot a step:

prominently label cup with this:
"DO NOT DRINK FROM CUP!!!!"

Trooper York said...

How can you make a "Scary Fruit Salad" and not have Titus involved.

If downtownlad was awake he would say that is homophobic.

edutcher said...

Reminds me of the Plains Indians' attitude toward buffalo - use everything.

Trooper York said...

I thought the Plains Indian attitude toward Buffalo is to never bet on them in the Super Bowl.

At least that's what I heard the last time I was at the Mohegan Sun.

Trooper York said...

Did I tell you lately that the New York Giants are going to win the Superbowl?

George Grady said...

Did I tell you lately that the New York Giants are going to win the Superbowl?

Eventually. I mean, it's inevitable, right?

Trooper York said...

Hey Grady how ya doing?

How's Aunt Esther?

George Grady said...

Amazingly enough, she's still hanging in there at 98. She had to quit her job at Kaufman's department store, though.

Old Dad said...

From the movie "Uncle Buck":

Miles: "Look, he's cooking our garbage."

Meade said...

Note: Ripe mangos, bananas, and pineapple in ceramic bowl in the icebox. Please take compost out before fruit flies find it. Thanks. ♥♥♥

peter hoh said...

Freeman, that recipe took out most of the fruit flies, but there are some diehards who refused to take the plunge and are still hanging around.

ddh said...

Fred4Pres,

All you need to know is that Mrs. Murphy had good results with her hydrangeas. Вы любите цветы?

author, etc. said...

Put it in a blender, how bad could it be?

Ritmo Brasileiro said...

What were his views on decriminalizing marijuana again?

Maybe that explains it.

But at least Meade didn't have to apologize. And his note is very funny, in the context of the photograph.

Ann Althouse said...

There are details in Meade's comments that you probably won't notice but I do. For example, I knew he used the word "icebox" because he knows I think we should have kept calling the refrigerator the "icebox." There are endless sweet things like that which I see and I will just assure you are there.

And of course, it was he who dispensed with that compost. I'm not too sure where. And he cut up all the fruit, including pineapple. I think I've cut up a whole pineapple like once or twice in my whole life.

Also, we went out walking today and picked a lot of black raspberries. Mostly Meade picked them, including way back in the stickers.

lucid said...

very lovely, truly. the apology in Williams's poem seems really about more than the plums. and Meade put the ice cold fruit in the icebox for you.
