Have yall ever heard of "Dumpster Diving"? I didn't know what it was till I heard my brother had been doing it and that I now have in my yard plants that he got out of the dumpster behind a Winn Dixie in the area.My brother is 58 years old! I was embaressed just to hear that he did that ! But I'll keep my flowers I guess you never know where good deals will come from

Anything that can be save from going to the landfill is a good thing. We shouldn't be embarassed by taking things out of the dumpsters, we should be ashambed that we put it in to begin with. My Dad and I have been "picking trash" for years! You can't believe what people throw away - it is a disgrace. So be proud that you rescued items from the dumpster!!!!

Oh I tell my little plants that they would have ended up in the trash if my brother wouldn't have got them out (LOL). I think they must be happy cause they are blooming (LOL). What should I tell my brother to say to the police when they ask him " what are you doing in there?" (LOL)
