Can I bury my kitchen waste in the garden rather than composting in a bin?

It's difficult to keep the compost pile wet enough to produce good hot compost - the heat and the sun in Florida dries it out too quickly. And the raised beds provide too much square footage to plant out entirely every season - I'd have way more veggies than our household can handle. So my question is, rather than putting the kitchen waste - vegetable and fruit trimmings and coffee grounds with filter - on the compost heap and hoping for the best, could I just bury the waste in an unused bed that would remain fallow until the next season, and rotating the beds used for composting in this way each season? Is there any reason why I shouldn't do this?
