After it leaves the farm, most produce goes to a packinghouse. This is where they cool, wash, sort, & package it. In other words, it's where the ugly fruit people think all this "waste" is happening.

As someone who works in produce, this whole "ugly fruit" movement is actually kind of enraging bc it's completely disconnected from what really happens in the supply chain. It's a big honkin wad of bullshit that self-promoting foodies get away with bc nobody knows better.

-The amt of produce wasted bc of labor problems (can't get a crew to harvest) & bad weather (melons that rot in the field bc it's too hot & wet, etc) WAY outstrips produce thrown out bc it's "ugly." Bc again... we eat a LOT ugly produce. You just wouldn't know it bc it's salsa.

-Most "ugly" produce gets turned into soups, sauces, salsa, jam, ice cream, etc. You think that stuff gets made from the pretty fruit & veggies?! jeebus, think about it for a minute

As someone who works in ag & food distribution I gotta disagree w this. A lot of "ugly" food -Won't survive distribution bc weird shapes makes it prone to getting smushed, bruised, start to rot, & make everything else in the box/crate rot. Broken skin does the same thing.

These labor shortages come down to 2 things: 1) Bad immigration policy 2) Farm biz models that can't survive a competitive labor market (which kinda tends to feed back into that first one) We SHOULD be worried about THAT. And "buy ugly fruit!" does fuck-all to address it.

The one big source of food waste that I *do* worry about is crops that are perfectly good, and rot in the field bc the farm can't get anybody to harvest them. (Orrrrr they don't want to pay enough for people to come harvest them.)

This whole "ugly fruit! uwu" thing is bewildering bc in order to believe that retail consumers can change the world by buying ugly fruit, you have to believe that the entire supply chain is made of numpties who make a regular habit of leaving money on the table.

My friends and family are going to be surprised when they hear that I’ve decided to change my laugh to be the Popeye laugh.

My plant of 10 years died so I buried it out of respect, but now it’s back. I wasn’t emotionally prepared for any of this.

the central premise of the whole Trump era is "what if the world's worst criminals stumbled ass backwards into winning a presidential election" -- it would be funnier if the future of the planet wasn't at stake
