    Vegetable scraps with seeds can sprout in compost piles if it is not maintained at the proper temperature range. Compost piles should be kept at 130-170 degrees F (54-76 C) otherwise the seeds may remain viable. To prevent sprouting you can simply remove the seed contents before adding your vegetable scraps to your compost bin.

    Thanks for the informative list. However I am wondering about vegetable food scraps containing seeds. Will the seeds (for example sweet pepper or tomato seeds) decompose or will they remain viable during composting? Thanks again.
