Is this St Johns Wort??

It's a hypericum but it doesn't look like perforatum to me. It looks more shrubby, H. androsaemum maybe

Can anyone help ID?

If you do a close (ish) shot showing the leaves and their arrangement on a twig we might get closer. and one of the trunk. Whatever it is you might expect flowers, or at least buds now. Has it got any?

Is this Crocosmia?

I'd remove it all unless you have a large, wild garden. It seeds everywhere.

Cooked food in compost

If it looks like compost, it's compost. The cooked food thing is mostly about not attracting rats, otherwise a small amount of cooked stuff doesn't hurt
