My Dad always did something similar, except he didnít plant over the hole he buried the veggie waste in.  He waited until the next year.
I am having more luck this year with my seedlings.  Some Asian veggies are nearly ready to pick.  Good friend told me today to let the healthiest one go to seed. There are no seedlings available in the shops. 
I dug a small plot up today,  with the help of the Chooks. Quite pleased with myself.  I will transplant some seedlings that I have grown from seed.

Bet they were in their element Chookie, how lovely that you can share a chore with the chooks.

Judy, I hope all the insects that they ate add flavour to their eggs.

Hopefully you will find out Chookie, I hope they do a better job tomorrow than they did today for you.

Chooks usually go off the lay about Easter. 
Nice and mild in the garden today.
