All the hard work pays off here! After waiting, the decomposed food scraps have turned into valuable nutrients for your soil.
This nutrient-rich soil helps feed and nurture the plants already in your garden and those you will plant in the future. If you buried your food scraps in a single hole, consider spreading your new enriched soil out over a flowerbed or garden to help distribute the nutrients. Alternatively, if you buried your food scraps in a trench in your garden or around trees or shrubs, you can sit back and watch your garden and yard flourish. Either way, the result is a beneficial and healthy product for you and the environment.
