Love the vegetable stock suggestion!!! After you make the vegetable stock, do you then throw the cooked vegetable scraps directly into the compost pile? Or do they have too dry out afterward? Thanks for the great suggestion!

Hi shamarlife! I let the cooked veggies cool overnight and the next morning I took them out to the compost bin. The only thing I’ve read is that they can’t have any butter or oils on them. Hope that helps!

2 and a half jars… not bad!

I put into mason jars and keep in the fridge. To be used throughout the week as needed.

All done. Ready to cool down.

A new thing I’m trying out. Each week I save all of our vegetable scraps and keep them in a container in the fridge. Normally I put them in the compost.
Sometimes I also pre-cut some vegetables so that they are ready to use during the week and the scraps go directly in the pot. I just add water and cook for a few hours. It’s made the best vegetable stock!
Ingredients = anything and everything

A friend who reads this blog was joking around with me asking where I get the stuff I write in my notebook (which can be seen in various photos). Since I’m trying so many new things this year I’ve made notes from all 4 of these books. For anyone that was curious.

I can’t tell you how much I love my clothes line. Yes, it was expensive, but in my opinion worth every penny. I use it year round both outside & inside. http://www.mrspeggshandyline.com/index.php

Sometimes it’s hard to buy something like this over the Internet. But in case anyone is looking, I would for sure recommend!

Potatoes cut into pieces and drying out a bit in the sun. Will be planting them this evening. Wish me luck, I’ve never grown a potato before!
