Great article Sally, may it reach all wanna be composters with little yards. Such is me and I have been using your method since mid summer. I was frustrated with all the little bags of coffee grounds, eggshells, and veggie peels that I kept saving for the nice big, mythical compost pile. So one day I just dug a hole and emptied those plastic bags contents right into the soil, then buried it well. I worried about a dog digging it up - we have lots of dogs, or a night varmint, but never happened. My Belinda's Dream rose (site of some of those buried egg shells, coffee grounds and bananna peels) was lush and beautiful as never before. So simple and it works!
I'm glad to hear you're using and liking this technique, even if I can't take credit for telling you to.
Bananas and/or peels are thought by many to be very good for roses. Congratulations on your pretty rose! I'll have to try that myself.
ave been doing that type of composting for years.When I had
raised beds for my vegies I used to bury Lobster shells quite deep.They generated heat as they broke down,The animals didn't bother them.I planted cucumbers on top of them in the warm soil had more cucumbers than I've ever grown.I took them to the lake and gave them to all my friends on the beach.JOY
