I notice that you weigh things with the parts that are usually discarded, such as a pumpkin with its rind and seed core. How much impact do you think that makes in your calorie calculations?

They've already declared it a loss, and I think they're worried about things being double tax written off if that makes sense? So I could theoretically get a write off from the shelter if I were to donate it, and the company I work for already wrote it off as a loss. They tell us all the time they'll stop giving the stuff away if they find we're not using it for self use. Do I think I'd get caught? No, but there's no reason to break the rules either.
I thought about wetting it and giving it to the chickens, but I have so much of it, and it would take so much time to wet it, and then give it to the birds. Not to mention it's 105'ish every day here with humidity in the teens. It wouldn't stay wet very long. It's a good idea, and if I had more time I'd do it if they liked it. Unfortunately it's just me, and I work 12 hour days, so I just don't have the time/energy to deal with another "chore".
I wasn't thinking it'd be a "waste" to put it in the compost pile. From what I read on google, it's an awesome fertilizer once it's broken down. I was actually thinking it was a really good way to put it to use so it wasn't wasted. The chickens and I would be eating it eventually, just in a different form.
I'll have to think on it some more.
Thanks for the advice!
