Weeds for the Kitchen Garbage?

My mother loves to poke around our yard without announcing her presence, she lives about four miles away and drives over unannounced. This morning, I heard her car idling on our driveway, when I came out I found her weeding and trying to unearth two "duende" (gnome) plant buds.

She pulled up a few weeds which she handed to me as I came back into the house. The weeds went in with the regular garbage, something that triggered this question: would adding live weeds to the kitchen garbage help decompose it faster? I think it would; regardless of any ecological benefit to adding weeds to the trash, I liked seeing green weeds poking out of my small, kitchen garbage can.
