Colorful Compost: Top-Dressing with Juicer Pulp



 Photo by Landscape for Life.

Composting is a beautiful representation of the cycle of life. Looking at your produce at its purest form; have you ever thought about the process of it getting to your kitchen table? Starting from the farmer, who placed the seed in the ground, the weeks it took to sprout, grow, and harvest. Then finally ending up in your hands. It’s time we reconnect with our food and understand this cycle of life we engage with every single day.

If you are an avid juicer, you know that with each juice you make a decent amount of pulp. To some, this pulp is garbage, waste, or simply has no use. The reality is quite contrary! Pulp from juicing is actually a colorful gold mine for your plants. Just sprinkling the pulp on the ground or around the garden bed will add a kick of nutrients.

Adding all the pulp to your compost bin is also another way to give your pulp another life. Fruit and veggie pulp decomposes quickly considering it has already been broken down into fresh plant material from the juicer. Adding this freshly made pulp is a lovely additive to your compost bin. Thus, infusing your compost with a variety of nutrients. Once your scraps have been fully decomposed, mix the compost with some soil to yield healthy, happy plants.
