The good news is it’s thawed in Edmonton! As it has here (even if we got some snow this week!) The apple blossoms are just about to spring and life is good. Again.
Remember the Bokashi project that Mike in Edmonton is running? Here’s an update from one of the test group. Thumbs up it seems.
This little guy is doing great, he’s clearly in charge of sprinkling on the bokashi bran each day into the bucket. Anyhow, if you’re curious, have a read and see how the project is progressing.
Another lovely Canadian with a mission is Desi in Edmonton. Here’s her latest bokashi post (she’s done a few good ones on the subject). Now we’re just waiting to hear the latest from Edmonton now that life has once again turned green there as it has there. So Desi, how’s things in your bokashi garden?!
And Mike, the guy behind it all and rather an interesting blog. Here’s his latest update with follow-up from one of the other members of the test squad, Cara. This is a really nice way of cranking up awareness, no preconceived ideas, no flogging of stuff, no heavy scientific stuff, just some nice friendly kitchen floor experiments. I like it!

The final bit of snow melted from my backyard last weekend, so my plan is to dig all 6 months worth of bokashi into my garden this weekend, and then plant the weekend after. I can’t believe my little drum composter consumed 24 GALLONS of bokashi material! And after about three weeks of thaw, it’s more than half black compost. WOOOT! I’ll try to get a post together about what worked for us (and what didn’t) by Sunday!
Your blog is such a great source for people new to Bokashi composting. Thanks!
Wow! That’s great news! I can feel your excitement from here — maybe it’s just a snow thing, we really hang out for our green half year don’t we?
Would be fun (of course!) with a few pics, just how big is that drum composter of yours?
And thanks for the compliment (blush), it’s always nice with encouragement.
Happy digging! Jenny
Where in Edmonton do you get your EM-1?
Hi Laura! Don’t know any more than you do about where to find EM in Edmonton, we live in Sweden. Hopefully you can track it down on the net or someone will point you in the right direction. Good luck!
