Composting - Katie E and I were just talking about this

and I went online to get answers.
we talked about compost and how to make it and this subject came up. embarrassing, but I thought I'd ask her.
my chiropractor uses it in his soil for around his tomatoes.
no, although he gives them to me, he's told me this POI, so, I take 'em home and dispose of them.
now I read some things about this questionable subject.

and they were a little cleaner.

I actually started burying some of my organic (i guess you would call it.) like peel and scraps of the veggies.

I dig a whole dump it in and then cover it up.

Your organic/vegetable waste is perfectly fine. Over time, you can have fabulous compost.

As far as doggie, um, "stuff," I don't want to go there. Emotionally I have a problem with it.

I alwasy wanted a compost pile but when I was livingi n PA we had to worry abotu bears and deer and the dogs

No back on Long Island I still have to worry about the dogs and the smell.

So i figure it couldnt hurt, and If i bury it it solves my problems and will hopfully regenerate the soil.

Many nations use human waste as fertilizers. But if a foreigner were to consume that food he or she may become ill.

Been making compost for over 2 years and it's never smelled. If it has any kind of smell, it's kind of like "earth."

well the smell doesnt bother me if there is one. its the dogs that would take things out of there.

Next year im going to not use a part of the parents garden to make a small compost pile since the dogs will be back at our place

Where does E. coli come from?

Here are some ways to make it safer. When we composted, we used only vegetable matter.
