Compost Pile – Lemon Rinds

Q: Will fresh lemon rinds hurt my compost pile?

A: Not at all. Anything that was previously a plant can be composted and the resulting humus can be incorporated into garden beds. Folks commonly compost banana peels, coffee grounds and corn cobs without problems. All will happily decompose, becoming a mass of beneficial bacteria and organic matter that keeps your soil healthy.
