I've been reading quite a bit here recently about composting. As much as I would love to start a compost pile or bin I don't have anywhere in my small yard to hide it so it isn't an eyesore to me and all the neighbors.
Is there a downfall to spreading the items around the garden that would normally be put in the compost bin or pile throughout the year? I'm sure it would take longer for most items to break down but I would still be getting the benefits of adding compost, correct? Also some items would act as a mulch for the garden...
We are mostly talking leaves, grass clipping, spent brewing grains, veggie scraps, UCG...just basic stuff.
