"Post Time": Seminar Tips Help Gardeners Use Kitchen Scraps, Yard Waste to Enrich Soil


One key factor in a successful compost is selecting the right ingredients.

“I tell gardeners to be very picky,” said Bakacs.

As an example, the mature seed-heads of weeds should not be added to a compost bin, because the bin may not generate enough heat to neutralize the seeds. For similar reasons, plants that show signs of disease or infestation should be kept out of the compost. Other excluded items are kitchen scraps containing meat, grease or soap residue, as well as litter or other waste from household pets.

Even with these restrictions, most gardeners have an ample supply of materials suitable for composting on hand, including chopped-up vegetable scraps and coffee grounds from the kitchen, torn-up cardboard, dried leaves, and other yard waste.
