squirrelhaven: green fern fronds on dark background (fronds)
I feel embarrassingly clueless asking this, but:

The farm we've joined will happily accept our food waste for their compost. As we aren't serious enough gardeners to have much use for compost ourselves (plus we have a dog who's a little too interested in eating anything that resembles food, even when it's decomposed), this seems like a great plan. But we know almost nothing about composting, other than that it's a good thing and cuts down on the garbage we're ultimately sending to a landfill. And all the sites I can find online that promise to help us get started are filled with technical information we don't really need at this point.

My questions are: what types of food waste can be composted, and what can't? What's the best way to store said waste during the week between farm visits without having it stink up the kitchen? Is there anything else we should be doing with this food waste, besides setting it aside in some safe way and then bringing it to the farm each week?

Many thanks.
