"Too much fun for a grown man. " Ha ha ha!!!! I love your cavalier approach to this. You're gonna go far.... I feel it in my bones. Anyone who isn't afraid to "experiment" ends up learning way more than those who just follow along!!! Way to go rcwarship!!!

mushroom2 Just started my Bokashi!

I just started my Bokashi!
I've been lurking here for weeks, read this entire thread and several others.

I love the idea of Bokashi and am going to join the Master Composter program by one of our local colleges! I love composting, and have been doing it the old-fashioned way with our no-spray lawn clippings and weeds, and our kitchen waste, but I want to try it with this as well!

I'm going to use paper shreds for my material, since we get a lot of them, and it just sounds like an easy way to use the stuff up. There's just too many "Browns" in my compost already and while the piles are doing well, I don't think they could take what we generate in paper waste and still make good soil.

Fingers crossed, in a few days I'll add my milk and get the long wait underway!

Will update as I go! ~QJ

I'm actually considering doing a cut-off bokashi barrel, in ground, and seeing what I can get out of it all. I know some folks have had good results from doing smaller buckets in a large flowerpot, and similar projects, but I just get a kick out of this stuff, and would LOVE to see how it works with a 55 gallon drum.
I'll probably start smaller, but I see a lot of potential going with a larger (or better yet, longer) container than a 5 gallon bucket. Like a big piece of wide-bore PVC, or maybe a long piece of plastic rolled into a cylinder, or... or... umm...

Well, we do have a bunch of big drums we bought to help us set up our water harvesting system; I might move up to that point if it gets really working.

How goes your bokashi Qj>>>>? A barrel would mean MORE space for bokashi bucket "fuel"!!! I think once you get going you'll find it's addictive. Before you know it.... you'll be going to restaurants and asking for take home boxes so you can scrape every plate off into it for "take home". I swear.... my friends and family are so used to me taking home what they don't eat they just pass their plates to me. I keep a plastic bag in my purse just in case we're at a restaurant that doesn't have big take home bags. I've had people at other tables ask me what I'm doing and I tell them.... after I'm done telling them.... I decide whether or not the person asking is a good sport or not and if they are.... I ask em if I can scrape off their plates too. People are into composting.... bokashi is just another way to do it. So far everyone I've "jokingly" asked has passed me their plate and the plates of the others eating with them. If my bokashi bucket is full.... there's always the big momma composter out back. It's just that I hate sticking fish and meat scraps in it because it attracts undesirables.

I've been thinking long and hard about some sort of a drip irrigation system fed by my rain barrels. If you come up with anything.... I'd love to know what you do since I've got a few spare Shutz tanks here that can hold over 300 gallons of water each.

Hi All,
A big thanks to biigblueyes & all who have contributed to this awesome post. I'm just now finishing up with my first batch of bokashi mix using coffee as the carrier & am in awe of how easy it is to do, and how effective it is.
As I am almost out of the mix, my next step is to simply add more coffee to what I have left to see if it will propogate again. I plan on addiing a little de-chlorinated water to the mix & see if it does it's thing.
This is waaaaaay too much fun.
Thanks Again To All,
Jon
PS the Gamma Seal Lids are awesome for the bokashi bucket as they spin on & off soooooooo easily. I also saw them down at Home Depot for $4 per lid.

Jon,

Your enthusiasm has me thinking I should look into bokashi. When the topic first came up, I checked out the threads a little...but I really know little about the process and have yet to take the time to read back.

Who knows, maybe you planted a seed, and in time, I'll be as enthused as you are someday.

Heya dapjwy,
You betcha, life's good....up to us to enjoy it. Give it a try when you get a chance, worst that can happen is you don't do it again!
Best Regards,
Jon

Are you going to add molasses too, to feed your microbe livestock herd?
