Amending soil with kitchen by products

Zone Seal beach ca 90740 | Marynimocks added on May 15, 2018 | Answered

Can I just whir together my coffee grounds, eggshells and banana peels ( or other fruit/veg) and work into soil en masse? Is there a limit? I live in a planned retirement community - no place at all to compost.

Those three happen to be just fine to add to soil as it is. They will break down without too much issue. I would not put much else besides these to avoid a fungal issue. There isn't a whole lot that I would recommend putting in without composting, but you will be fine to use these items.
