Step one for starting my veggie patch is to start making use of my scraps.
This pile of goodies was part of my end of shopping week "Leftover veggie and beef stew" which gets made up in the slow cooker. This week I found some mushrooms, zucchini, sweet potato, carrots (those ones above were soft and too far gone for use) onions and cherry tomatoes. This is what normally would be thrown into the bin. This time I wrapped it all up in paper towels and popped it into a compost pail that now sits in my kitchen. I'm going to make a small compost bin soon and have it sitting outside ready to go to make lovely compost for my garden.
