Decomposing Fruits and Vegetables Scraps

I used to believe that I don't have a green-thumb because every time I try my hand at planting nothing really comes alive. Decomposing fruits and vegetables scraps have made me love gardening and urban farming because it helped me develop nutrient rich soil that now yields papaya, sili, ginger and string beans. I even grew melon but due to lack of soil it didn't get to be that big.

Composting is a method of decomposing organic solid wastes. It can therefore be used to recycle organic material. The process involves decomposition of organic material into a humus-like material, known as compost, which is a good fertilizer for plants.

Other benefits of decomposing food scraps includes, keeping these materials out of landfills where they take up space and release methane, suppresses plant diseases and pests, provides organic matter and nutrients which will improve plant growth and lead to better yields.
