I just bought a couple pounds of dehydrated soup vegetables (no onions, leeks, or garlic) with the plan of using these for a quick bird dinner if I don’t have time for fresh. My freezer is crappy and doesn’t keep things nice in the long term, so I can’t freeze much bird food.
Anyhow I’m thinking I will pour out a bit of the dried veggie pieces in the birds little bowls and add some hot water from a teakettle. Let soak for a few minutes and pour off the water. Then feed the warm veggies (after checking temp). I think I could even put a vile lentil based pasta noodle in each bowl. That would be extra protein.
How does this sound? I know it’s not as good as fresh but it’s better than just having pellets. My raw vegetable supply is not reliable.
I hope it works for you and the birds. It's been difficult for me to get fresh vegetables for a couple weeks because the store where I usually shop has been remodeling the produce department. I've had to go to a different store just to get that stuff. Ralph has to have his fresh sugar snap peas.
The store by my home has a tiny tiny produce section (the candy section is bigger) so I usually go with frozen veggies. But I got an Easter ham and now my freezer is full. Rental fridges are not so great and if I put too much in stuff thaws so I’m being careful.
I think they might LIKE the lentil pasta which would be great because it’s high protein and I sure don’t like it.
