Animal Feed Bokashi - [Part Two]

bokashi animal feed - results

This week in the Flog:

  • Following up last week’s flog on supercharging animal feed
  • This week we get to see the bokashi in action!

Last week I started the process of bokashi composting animal feed for my roaches. Yeah, roaches. They make awesome cockroach compost and are a great food for my Bearded Dragon, Opi. But I’m also going to use this animal feed bokashi for our dog, Floflo. She will be the real test, if she likes it, it was a success. Dogs aren’t that picky but let’s see, I hope she likes it! This week is all about the process, and the results, including lots of pictures. Let’s get started!

Here are all the ingredients that […]

Animal Feed Bokashi - [Part One]

Animal Feed Bokashi - ingredients

This week in the Flog:

  • Turning Animal Food Into Superfood!
  • Theory This Week, Practice Next Week

Another bokashi Flog! Why another bokashi flog? Because it’s like the composting version of our recipes. It’s all about fermentation, which is what the recipes are based on. And it’s composting! I love composting, as you might have noticed by the composting series earlier this year. And like the recipes, there are so many ways to go about it, and ways to use it. This article is one example of that.

I have roaches out the balcony to feed Opi, our bearded dragon, and to produce cockroach compost from kitchen scraps. The compost is amazing, the plants love it! And the roaches […]

Some time ago I wrote an article about Bokashi – everything you need to know from start to finish about how to bokashi. Later, I followed it up with an article all about bokashi bran – this was a great article that might surprise even experienced bokashi practitioners – you can make your own bokashi bran at home with nearly anything – plus sugar, water, and a bit of lacto inoculant.

This week’s article follows up the bokashi bran article I wrote a few weeks ago, with a typical example of making bokashi bran at […]

How to Make Bokashi Bran

Bokashi - Layer Style

This should be a very interesting article for those practicing bokashi composting at home. If you aren’t familiar with bokashi composting, we have an excellent bokashi composting overview here. Most people doing bokashi composting get hung up on bokashi bran. Places selling bokashi supplies will always sell bokashi bran to go with the bin. It tends to be expensive, and you have to keep buying it! Fortunately, you can make your own bran very easily.

However this is where people get hung up again. Nearly all bokashi bran recipes call for using “wheat bran” as the main ingredient. If you don’t live in the states, this can be hard to find and quite expensive. However we are fortunate again, because […]

How to Compost Bokashi

Composting Bokashi - Compost Tea

This week in the Flog:

  • Composting of Kitchen Scrap Bokashi
  • Final Composting Article of the Series

I just love composting. There are so many different ways to compost – whether you are using critters like worms, cockroaches, or BSF larva, or some anaerobic method like bokashi, or you are just composting traditionally with a combination of green and brown ingredients.

My compost pile out on the balcony has been steadily growing as I’ve practiced all these composting styles and added them to it. It’s exciting to see, and the pile looks amazingly rich.

I have one more thing to compost before I apply this to the garden. My bokashi bin I’ve been using for kitchen scraps is getting […]
