I make quick and easy compost material in my kitchen using an old blender. I put all coffee and tea grounds in the blender, along with eggshells, banana peels, all vegetable scraps and enough water to allow it all to grind.

I use this countertop compost mixture as a fertilizer in my flower and vegetable gardens.
