“Composting is one of the most practical ways to utilize food waste at home. You can also prevent food waste from turning into garbage by preparing compost in your home. How to make compost at home?”
WHAT IS COMPOST?
The process of turning plant and animal wastes into organic fertilizers by keeping them in a humid-oxygenated environment is called composting.
Compost can be obtained in different ways and by using different tools. Similar to the natural environment, vegetable residues are subjected to oxygenated degradation in a way that does not allow odor-causing anaerobic degradation. Thus, a fast and clean fertilizer is obtained.
WHAT CAN BE PLACED IN THE COMPOST?
Materials that can be put into compost; vegetable and fruit skins and residues, fresh herbs, tea waste, green leaves and egg shells.
You can add water to speed up the rotting process of the mixture, but your mixture should not be too wet. If you get too wet, you can add some twigs and brown waste to it, such as bark, sawdust, dry leaves and straw.
If you add too much water to your compost, microorganisms will suffocate and die. Your wastes do not turn into fertilizer and rot. A healthy compost should be warm to the touch.
Some ingredients should not be added to the compost. These; fatty foods, tea and coffee bags, and of course plastics are materials.
When your compost stops giving off heat and becomes insect-free and fragrant, it is ready. You can add the fertilizer you have obtained to the soil of your flowers.
