Blender compost, anyone?

I read a great tip on a gardening site which I’m going to try.

I have a compost pile, but being a fairly impatient person, I’m always wanting it “cooked” by Friday.

Basically, you just stuff a blender with your kitchen scraps, (eggshells, coffee grounds, teabags, vegetable waste), add a cup of water when full, blend it up, then you dump it directly on your beds. Not the ones you sleep on, of course. (Just be careful not to tax your blender by putting in anything too large – like a whole banana peel.)

I keep a refuse bowl on top on top of my microwave and have to go out back every other day to dump it, plus it sometimes causes a fruit fly problem if you don’t dump it often enough.

I going to try dumping it directly in my blender –  The rubber top of the blender seals the container until you have enough to whip up.‘

I’m wondering if anyone has tried this kitchen scrap cocktail, and if it attracts unwanted pests?
