There isn’t much to report about the garden, apart from the fact that the Green Johanna seems to be working. Since Monday, the heap has gone down by about a third – I’ll have to check the dalek to compare.
On the subject of compost, though, we held our Composting Champions meeting at Rainbow Junction, a café which uses food which would otherwise have been thrown away, today. I ate a delicious bruschetta with mushrooms
and beetroot brownie with banana custard, which I find most pleasing. It is a shame that so much food goes to waste, as I have mentioned in numerous other posts, but I’m glad that there are a few resourceful individuals who are saving some of it from Leeds’ incinerator.
Another pleasing save from landfill is a set of blue glasses and other crockery, which I found in a Help The Aged shop. I had taken a few bits and pieces in and decided that I really needed to buy something to support the cause.
Of course, this does somewhat negate the decluttering efforts. However, considering our dwindling set of glasses and bowls – I wonder where they all disappear to – this purchase is an investment of a kind.
Besides, I love blue glass, so these will be kept from mainstream use. There are enough excess goods in the world, methinks, to allow me the occasional small indulgence!
