Recycling Kitchen Waste Bokashi Style

As I wait for Spring, and prepare the nursery pots I will use for my edible plant fervor, I am now using all kitchen cuts and discards in the mini kitchen compost bin to build soil.  Sprinkled with pinches of bokashi bran, resulting in fermented material, when the bin is 2/3 full, I empty it onto 3″ of soil in 6-gal pots.

No odor, no flies, just plain vegetable material with a film of fungi ~ just like cheese and tempeh ~ returning to the soil.

Cover with 4″ of soil and composted manure,  let it rest (like good wine) for 3 weeks and this will be an excellent growing medium for polyculture planting.

… and this is an example of my style of Polyculture Planting.
