Food For My Garden Plants

The food dregs from my meal preparations that will be fed to my garden plants.  
Garlic skins, onion skins, end bits of carrots and beans, broccoli stems, etc.  

Sometimes I use the thick broccoli stems for making broccoli pesto sauce but that does not happen all the time.  And when I don't, the thick stems get chopped up for the compost.
And in the last few years, I've done away with a compost bin and bury these veg dregs directly into the soil, a few inches deep in the potted plants. 
Works just as great!

Great nutrition for the plants, less rubbish in the trash bin and less stuff to go to the landfill!
