Bokashi experiment, phase 3
We're moving along to phase three of our bokashi experiment, with the Lactobacillus bokashi in the waiting phase, sealed away in its full bucket. This time around, we're using store-bought bokashi starter, and I have to admit that I have seen a different within the first two days of the experiment.
In the meantime, it was
the one-month-after-application mark for my control food scraps, which
had spent a month in an unsealed bucket with no microbial starter, then
were buried in a shallow trench in a very poor-soil area. According to
the bokashi literature, food scraps should have become compost by this
point if treated with bokashi starter during the bucket stage.
Un-bokashi food scraps, though, look very much like rotten food after
one month in the soil, with a few worms starting to move in but with the
outlines of the scraps well recognizable. The only really surprising
part about this phase of the experiment is that Lucy didn't dig up the
trench to eat the scraps --- I guess I chose a spot far enough out of
her usual stomping grounds.
