Potassium

Bananas are a great source of potassium for health reasons so does that mean that adding bananas and banana skins increase the potassium level of compost?

Thanks for that link camprn.

That looks like it's got some really good info in it.

I was just thinking of bananas last night after I got home from work and it just made me wonder about potassium levels in compost.
