Twenty days ago I put a small amount of dirt, some bokashi, and more dirt into this planter. I did not plant anything in the planter since then, so yesterday, I dumped the planter and decided to incorporate the contents into a compost pile that I had started the day before.
Here’s the output. No flies, no smell. I can still pick out small bits of straw and a corn cob, but mostly it just looks like black dirt. I put it on the bottom of the compost heap and today, when I turned the heap again, I couldn’t find anything that looked like bokashi.
As a bonus, this planter has a hole near the bottom to allow water to drain. When I want to water plants, I drain the remaining bokashi juice/compost tea into another bucket, dilute with more water, and use it water/fertilize.
