Bokashi Update

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!

Hi Compost Guy,
Looks like we have a few interests in common. I would be interested to see how you get on with making your own Bikashi. Thank you for the link, I shall add yours to my site.

Hi Compost Guy,

I first heard about Bokashi on the Living Green Podcast where they interviewed Heather Gorringe, founder of Wiggly Wigglers and I’ve been searching for more information about it ever since.

So yes, please share all the “dirty details” of your experiment and you can also count me as a new reader. Now I’m off to check out your Red Worm site too.
