I am a gardener and this is a tip I use almost daily.
When I come across kitchen scraps, such as coffee grounds, vegetable peelings, or corn husks, I keep them! I place them into a large bowl, ( or you can buy a “fancy” compost container), and set them aside.
When I have a few free minutes, I take them to my backyard and add them to my compost pile. I dig into the middle of the pile, dump the contents, and cover them up with the remaining pile. My pile is about 5 foot by 5 foot, but could be any size.
Once the scraps breakdown with the help of worms and weather, I get beautiful garden gold, as I call it. It is a healthy soil amendment that boosts my flowers’ growth and improves my garden beds. All for free!
And I get the added benefit of knowing that I am helping keep our landfills smaller. A win-win, if you ask me.
