Do you get a little bit of extra special help too?
I know the way that my (edible) garden grows, apart from with the help of sunshine and water, is with the goodness of my Bokashi. Given that the strawberries on the back deck are now starting to fruit, the magic ingredient is clearly working …
Bokashi is basically an indoor composting system for your fresh kitchen waste, and the best thing of all is that it doesn’t smell. It’s a small enclosed bench-top bucket that breaks down an incredible range of food stuffs – things like fruit, vegetables, leftovers, meat (if you eat it), cheese, bread, and coffee grinds are no match for the decomposing power of Bokashi!
Basically you just place your waste into the bucket, sprinkle some Bokashi grains over the top and keep alternating layers until the bucket is full. The magical liquid that is produced as part of the microbial fermentation process is like liquid gold for the garden.
We love our little Bokashi – it’s so much more convenient than having to rush out to an outdoor compost bin (which is also more limited in what it can be ‘fed’). You can find out more about the wonders of Bokashi here.
Do you have a little gardening secret that you’d like to share? (I need all the help I can get).
