Ways of composting foods for garden?

I love composting. We have a small container sitting at the kitchen sink to collect all the goodies. Sometimes I dump it into the vita mix and blend it before I pour it on container plants. I find I get about twice as many avocado's when I just dump the raw compost around the base of the tree and let nature do all the work for me.
I used to have a tree service drop off huge truck loads of ground up trees and we would spread it all around our plants, sometimes it would be 4-5 feet deep, but by the next spring it would only be 4-5 inches deep but would have several inches of rich black soil underneath. We were getting landscaping companies to dump their garden waste and we'd spread it all around as well. I even went 'dumpster diving' behind grocery stores and collected huge amounts of vegetables. They started putting it in boxes for me and sitting it next to the trash. I even had a restaurant put all their vegetable scraps into 33 gallon garbage cans for me to take home. Unfortunately at the restaurant some employees could not be trained to not dump cooked food mixed with meat into the cans but all we did is cover these mistakes up with more ground up trees.  We had the most beautiful mushrooms growing all over too.
Now that we have moved the garden and orchard to another property we still get an occasional ground up tree dumped and sometimes a pickup truck load from a small landscaper, but these days most everyone wants the 'mulch' when they have a tree removed or trimmed. Some advice. If you order a truck load of manure to add to your compost you might want to visit the place it is going to be delivered from to make sure it is dried and not fresh, smelly and oozing with liquid; your neighbors might complain.

There are also ways to compost the worst of the stinkies. Bokashi composting. Lactobacillus and other things in special containers QUICKLY breaks stuff down. If you have land, you can put things like fish, meat scraps, etc in a shallow trench. The less you disturb the soil the better to keep the mycelium and probiotic life of the soil intact. Keep it in the top 8 inches or so - too deep and less Oxygen slows the process - and there are possibilities of feral cats, dogs, skunks, coons, etc digging stuff up. Can cover with a section of hardware cloth if you need to.


There are soldier fly systems. Special buckets have the flies/maggots clean up rotten material and a winding tube which exits the side of the bucket can drop into a smaller bucket. The grub thingies climb the spiral and drop into the bucket. Great for chickens.


They do make CO2 and thus a composter in your greenhouse helps those plants a lot. As for methane - it becomes greenhouse in 2 UV rays unlike CO2 which is greenhouse in one range. Water vapor is greenhouse in 3 UV ranges, more prevalent, etc.

Reality? i suspect STRONGLY that CO2 is NOT the only cause of global warming, since our CO2 production is not warming up Mars, but it's temp is climbing parallel with ours. We are in a solar cycle which tends to heat the planet in cycles, but the "scientists" pretend that isn't happening now. The CO2 provides for increased regulation and fee structures, control over more segments of society. It is political. It is a distraction from much larger survival issues. It is only a partial solution.


When the oxygen level of the atmosphere has dropped, it is virtually impossible for the CO2 levels to remain the same. How can you have umpteen gasses, have one of the major components decrease, and NOT have a proportional increase in all the rest of the gasses?

If you have a garden, it does not have to be this expensive or difficult. Throw whole banana peelings under tomato plants--or where you will plant tomatoes.  They will decompose within just a few daysFishheads and other fish wastes are good buried under grape plants.  You can throw eggshells anywhere.  Calcium helps prevent blossom end rot(tomato). I have a 2nd story deck overlooking my garden and a good throwing arm, so my aim is accurate enough that I can land certain food wastes where I throw them.


You do not have to separate compost, but we like to selectively recycle certain items as fertilizer for specific crops, depending on the minerals they contain.


Your garden should consist of crop rows separated by pathways.  Once a day, dig a hole 2' deep, or as deep as needed.  We generally have about one 10-qt. bucket of compost a day, more if I am preserving food or cooking for a crowd.  (When you grow your own food and eat a high fiber diet, there is a lot of trimming and waste.  Crn cobs, watermelon rinds, outer cabbage leaves and cores, etc. ) After supper each evening, take your days waste out and bury it in the hole in the pathway you dug earlier. You will walk over it and it will level out in a couple of days. Then, the next day, dig a hole next to it so you have a series oif holes dug in a consecutive pattern along pathways.  The next year, you will use the pathway areas as planting beds.


When you bury compost this deep, it eliminates odors and there is nothing for animals to drag around.  Let the bacteria, worms, warm sun and rain do the work of turning compost over and breaking it down for you over time.  It takes only a few seconds to dig a hole, not really that hard once you make it part of your routine.  While I do dishes, my husband buries compost.  You can leave the hole open and dump compost all day long if you are cooking a large amount of food.  Animals seem to mostly come around after dark, so you do not need to close the hole until after supper
