Weighing the food

Hubbub kindly gave us some handsome bathroom scales with which we have been weighing the food going into the fridge and the food that we are composting (the difference between the two is what is being taken from the fridge).

From Monday morning until this (Thursday) afternoon, 89kg has gone into the fridge and 4kg (two weeks’ worth) has gone for composting.  I had thought that 25-50kg of food was being cycled through the fridge each week, but it looks like it is 100+kg.  Very exciting.

Today the fridge is rammed full with beans, tomatoes, potatoes, kiwi fruit, apples etc. etc. from the Magdalen Street Tesco and St. Aldates Sainsbury’s.  No photo, but imagine food being shoved into the fridge like commuters onto the Tokyo subway…
