Yeah, that’s been me, no blogging for a couple of months. More important things going on; a grandson who had pneumonia, a gallstone, Kawasaki’s disease (he was so yellow that he was orange, bilirubin, 27), and finally a ruptured gall bladder that necessitated emergency surgery. He was also born with half a heart, which only complicated things. He thought it was unfair to celebrate two holidays in the (actually, two different) hospital. I agree!
Here’s a not-so-good picture of my red worms eating fermented garbage from a bokashi bucket using newspapers inoculated with a rye/milk mixture. The rye did double duty. I planted the seed in my garden as a green cover crop.
I started another bokashi bucket after the New Year. Yes, it contains meat scraps. It is about 3/4 full. I am fermenting this bucket using newspapers that have been innoculated with refermented kombucha tea with molasses and my worm castings added. So far, it’s working. Between the trouble-free kombucha tea-fermenting, my bokashi buckets, and worm bins, I am composting nearly all of my edible food scraps, along with a big pile of newspapers. This will have to satisfy me until it is warm enough to get outside and feed my soil.
