    breakfast was matzah with cheese and an orange.  meatless, not vegan.  This has been an enlightening 3 weeks.

    One orange peel in the compost bucket.  Went to my sister's house for dinner.  She composts too!

    We had our first "casualty".  Somehow we let two bags of green beans spoil.  We had to throw them away completely.  At least we were able to compost them!

    daily work to/from parking lot to work.  The ground cover has grown to at least 12 inches.   Amazing.

    Another day with Passover Food.   Gefilte Fish for lunch.  Tuna for dinner.  Still better than chicken or beef.

    Continue with little food scraps.   Salad fixins and a banana peel. I am so happy we compost.

    Sunday was not a good day.  Too tired to take a walk.  Went to a picnic where meat was served.  Dinner was a traditional Passover meal with meat.

    We shared a Vegan, Gluten Free Passover with friends.  The highlights were home made gluten free matzah, vegan field roast, vegan sausage, salad with vegan cheese, asparagus with vegan butter, roasted potatoes, roasted vegetables.  It was very easy to transform a traditional meat-filled meal to vegan.
