In-Place Composting

By orchidgal
November 22, 2014

If you are in the habit of throwing your kitchen waste down the garbage disposal, you are wasting valuable nutrients that would make your flowers and vegetables thrive. So, if you only have a little kitchen waste and not enough yard waste to compost, or if you don’t have a compost bin in your garden, you can do “in-place composting”.

I agree I've been debating what to do since my compost area became a garden area. This a great idea that I am going to try! Thank you!

This is a great idea. I don't have an enclosed compost pile and have found that if I put kitchen scraps into my regular pile, even if I bury them, the critters find them. Since I'd rather not make the critters welcome, this is a great solution. Thank you.

I think I'll add the egg shells I've been saving to the mix, too.

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

GREAT IDEA! We have composted our food wastes for years - but we have the space for
a compost pile next to the garden. This blender idea is brilliant ! Thank You!
