Every day I eat an apple.
Why? Because I can :)
I've also started feeding my feathered and furry friends an apple a day too ~ just to keep them happy. I NEVER toss an apple core into the garbage ... it just attracts those nasty fruit flies. Instead it's become my ritual to do this:
I cut the apple from the core ~ then dice up the core and put it out on the bird feeder. The birds LOVE it! The reason for dicing it and not just putting the whole core out there is so it can go around to more than just one bird ... like the bluejay. They will fly in and snag the apple from the feeder and none of the other birds get a taste.
We call this little nuthatcher the affectionate name ~ "AsUp" ... because you always see it like this ~
Please don't toss your apple core or any other fruit scraps in the garbage. Put them outside somewhere ~ your furry and feathered friends will appreciate your kindness. Even if you live in the city and think that you don't have a place to put it ... look around ... you do. Even if it's tossing it beside a wall somewhere ... setting it on a window sill ... throw it in a ditch ... the mice will love you, the birds will love you ... the rabbits and squirrels ... they all will love you ... they need their vitamin C too :) I don't consider this littering at all ... it's Up Scale Recyling ... re-purposing a reusable product. You used what you could off of it ... now it's time to share the remainder. Even if the critters don't eat it and it rots down ... it's replenishing the soil with nutrients. Who knows ... you might even be planting a future apple tree???!!!???!!!

So it goes in my neck of the woods.
