Make Organic Fertilizer & Compost From Your Kitchen Waste

Every day the most household waste accumulates in your kitchen. In the process of making food, you have things like cans, used paper products, and even eggshells to throw away. Studies have found that people who live in major cities generate around one kilo of household waste per day. A good deal of that waste is composed of organic matter, and you can use this matter to make fertilizer for your plants and vegetable crops. You can quickly learn to convert that smelly kitchen waste into highly organic manure. This kind of manure is rich in nutrients and can be used to grow flowers and vegetables.

If you search online, you can find a lot of online magazines that tell how to make compost. However, the information in these magazines might overwhelm you. Here is an easy method.

To convert your kitchen waste into organic fertilizer, you’ll need the kitchen waste, a compost bin, garden waste, sawdust, animal manure, and a garden fork. You can collect enough kitchen waste by using a chipper shredder. Always consider what food remnants you can use to make good fertilizer and store them until you’re ready to make the fertilizer. You want to avoid using oils and grease, milk products, and fatty meats. These can make your compost too wet and can produce a nasty odor.

What you want to use are vegetable and fruit peelings, eggshells, and over-ripened fruits and nuts. Choose leaves and clippings from your garden that you can gather together with a lawn sweeper or bagger. Place these on your lawn so that the garden waste can mix with the grass cuttings. Dump out all of the contents of your lawnmowers into a compost bin. You’ll need sawdust in your compost that will hurry up the composting process. If you don’t have any sawdust around, you can purchase it from a gardening store, and you can also purchase animal manure.

Once you have all of the compost ingredients, place them into the compost bin. Turn the compost bin around often at least two or three times a day. By doing this, you are sure to mix up the best natural nutrients that will produce high-quality fertilizer. To make sure you let excess moisture out of the compost bin as you spin it, make sure there are a few holes on the side. The result should be a mixture that is like soil and dark in color. Then you can spread the fertilizer in your garden, seeing how it takes effect before you apply any more. To make sure you always have plenty of organic fertilizer, keep the compost bin where you can always throw in all of your kitchen and garden waste.
