When you throw whole foods in the garden it can actually starve your plants here's why.
You have your compost materials) onion tops potato peelins etc.) Then the bacteria come and multiply and break them down to become compost while this is happening the bacteria also eat nutrients out of the soil stealing it from yout plants. Its not until they have completely consumed their available food that they die back and in laymens terms their bodies explode and release the nutrients that is what you are doing when you compost seperatly you allowing the bacterial bloom to happen in a controlled area and when they die and become the nutrient hummas type stuff with lots of AVAILABLE nutrients for your plants you spread it in the garden
