I wouldn't go so far as to call this composting, but I decided last night that I'd start collecting a few things in a Gladware-esque container. I'm thinking this'll mostly be for used tea leaves and garlic paper, with the intention that I'll just toss it all out in the yard somewhere outside the apartment. I do the same thing with salad greens we don't get to in time. It's all leaves, right? Just like the trees out there shed their leaves every year, I'm just adding a few more every month or so.
So here's what it looks like after making one quart of tea last night and three quarts tonight. And the paper from one clove of garlic that I had thrown into my veggie soup this evening.
I poked some holes in the lid, so the tea leaves won't stay soggy forever. I hope.
