is an easy way to bypass the sometimes-long decomposition phase
and get the nutrients in your food scraps to your fruit trees and
The basic idea is simple: throw food scraps into a powerful blender
with some water, blend away, and then pour the result onto the
roots/surrounding soil of your plants.
Why do this?
It's obviously more energy intensive than just throwing things into a
compost pile, but if you're looking to give your plants a quick
nutrient boost, it's ideal.
If you're on a raw food diet you've got tons of fruit scraps. I've seen
some people throw these directly on top of the soil surrounding their
trees, but if you need to avoid attracting bugs and animals from the
woods, this isn't going to work.
Blending the scraps together, however, will allow the nutrients to sink
right into the soil and root system of the plants.
To make this work you're going to need a need a powerful blender. I
highly suggest a Vitamix,
can blend just about anything.
