Kitchen scraps and garbage
With just my wife and I, we have very little waste- something we did not eat one meal would be part of the next. Or I would cook enough at one time deliberately make a second meal. Most of our kitchen scraps were the very small amounts that might be stuck to the plate that I would wipe off with a paper towel or napkin.
I have always had an adequate amount of junk mail and cardboard for bedding. But I always wondered where some of you folks had so much actual food items to feed your worms.
Then my daughter and her two toddlers came to spend the week. Suddenly, I have more food scraps than my worms could possibly handle. I am dumping that and paper products into my compost by the bucket load. (I'll let that process down some and then feed it to my worms later.)
My brother, sister, and their families are in town for little family reunion. They are not staying with me, but because I have a pool, my house has been Party Central. Pizza boxes and fast food bags and wrappers are going into the compost whole. Beer consumption has been high and my large recycle bin is full of bottles. I have several empty boxes stacked that I will have to cut up to save for later.
