Normally, bones do not compost and will last decades… or longer in a compost pile… But we found that after making bone broth with the bones within a year the bones would dissolve in the garden. We think the vinegar added to making the bone broth to liberate the minerals weakens the bone structure making the bone dissolve.
Sorry but I’ll stick with liming to get rid of human bone waste.
