Can I bury my kitchen waste in the garden rather than composting in a bin?

If it works for her, that's good- but it's usually not recommended. I've read that it can even kill some plants. The only safe disposal I know of is donating it to a bio-diesel recycling center. Though I haven't done that myself.

Good answer! I live in Arizona where it's really hot and actually, contrary to popular belief, humid in the summer with monsoon- ick! What I bury tends to break down within a couple months as well.

You can totally do that! I do it because I have hard time turning my compost heap. So, some things you can bury are:

Veggie scraps
Lint
Grains and cereals
hair
paper towels and tissues
paper of many sorts- shredded (though I prefer to use shredded paper as mulch- it's awesome!)
Tea bags and coffee
Toilet paper rolls and cardboard ripped up (though I like to use the cardboard in bigger pieces under my plants where I don't want grass to grow- I cover with shredded paper and then usually regular mulch- good worm food!)
Cotton clothing ripped up
Old wine
Vacuum Cleaner bag contents

And the list goes on.....

Thai Basil Recipes Please

I joined this site just to thank you for this recipe. I made this with rice noodles and it was so good and so easy. Love the heat, love the flavor... the only thing I might do different next time I make it (and there will definitely be a next time), is maybe make a little more marinade as the noodles got a little dry. Other than that- thank you so much. Delic.
