A lot of people try to make compost at home, which is totally great. Compost at home is a great way to reduce waste, not send as much stuff to landfill, and really get a pretty good quality product at the end of it. Compost, by definition, is a product that’s been above 131 degrees for over three days straight. That’s really hard to do at home, so when you’re doing composting at home you always want to leave out eggshells, cheese, milk, things like that might build a disease population in your compost. Also, at your home compost you are maybe going to have a problem with weed seeds, so I wouldn’t use it as much in your veggie garden, so I would use it as a really rich garden gold around your fruit trees and your flowering shrubs, like Azaleas, camellias, and roses.
