Most fruit waste, like orange peels, banana and papaya skins and apple cores, I toss straight into my YOLO. Watermelon is another thing entirely. Because it is so moisture rich, I leave the trimmings in the sun for a few days to dry them out a little before throwing them in my YOLO. Remember to balance wetter nitrogren-rich materials with dry, moisture-absorbing carbon-rich materials like shredded leaves and torn-up egg trays.

Leave watermelon out to dry
