In my last Bokashi-related post I mentioned that I was considering making my own bokashi mixture. Well, I decided to take that route and ended up ordering a bottle of ‘friendly microorganisms’ (Biosa [tm]) liquid solution from Great Day Bokashi.
I’m happy to report that my bottle of microbes arrived today! The unlabelled container could easily be mistaken for a bottle of malt vinegar, so I will definitely make sure to label it before putting it in the fridge!
I apparently have enough of the liquid to make 40 kg of bokashi, so that’s not too shabby! I next need to buy a decent amount of wheat bran and some molasses. I’m pretty sure I’ll need to let my bokashi mix age for awhile before I can use it, thus the sooner I get started, the sooner I can start up my bokashi bucket!
I’m always interested to read about other people’s experiences with bokashi – as luck would have it, Karen popped by the blog today and let me know about the bokashi series over at the ‘Green Fingered Photographer‘ blog, which looks like a great site, by the way. Be sure to check it out!
Ok, thats all for now. Will continue to keep you posted on every dirty detail!
