6. I find trench composting very effective

Dig a trench between a row of vegetables, add compostable materials, and bury.

Within a week or two, the earthworms have eaten every scrap and peel that was there, leaving behind their rich castings and aerating the soil in the process.

Now that I've begun feeding scraps to my flock of chickens, though, I have much less material to bury.
