Crumbly Bokashi goodness


The last Bokashi dog poo digester was full yesterday, It is time to pull up the first and see if our theory works.

The good new is that it does! Even over winter, the action of anaerobic bacteria, followed by worms and other soil critters, turned a 20 litre bucket of dog poo and Bokashi bran into about half a bucket of good stuff.

No smell, no yucky liquids, just crumbly goodness!

This was once smelly dog poo...

As a general precaution, I wouldn’t sprinkle it on our annual vegetables. It’s source material is poo, after all and there are many variables to consider: soil temperature, variations in bacteria on the bran, time, composition of the dig poo etc.

I think its best to either bury it beneath perennials or put it through a second stage of composting such as worms (who just love eating all the microbes,) or a hot, aerobic compost pile.
