    Sure, possum, skunks, and racoons will love your yard.

    It isn't a good idea to do this with meat leftovers as the bacteria and diseases which grow upon meat are far more likely to come back and bite you in the *** at a later point in time.

    You can compost non-meat leftovers. Just burying them in the garden won't do it.

    Vegetable matter like banana peels, potato skins or lettuce leaves can go into a compost heap and will naturally break down to a nice fertilizer for your plants. Meat products will attract undesirable animals and insects and shouldn't be left in the garden.

    It's called a compost heap.

    But: if ouy put meat or cooked foods on it, be prepared for rats and similar animals wanting to partake of your offerings. In some environments, this may not be easily tolerated.
