Waste-land

I’ve got a month’s worth of food-waste data, and the average is holding fairly steady at just over 10 lbs (~4.5 kg):

There was a noticeable drop this past week, which I’m at a loss to explain. I’m quite sure I didn’t miss anything; are we becoming that much more efficient at using food? One would hope so, but only time and more data points will tell. I know I’m carrying over some doomed leftovers for which I’ll have to account, but I’m just not ready to deal with that yet.

Meanwhile, the compost bin is filling, and winter is reluctantly loosening its grip on the land. Only last week we had a major snowfall,19 inches (~48 cm) over two days, and two dozen highly irritated robins in the backyard. But this morning is clear and warming, and the snow has nearly all melted. Only 12 more weeks until planting season.
