A drink for my soil. All the vegetable and fruit matter my blender can handle. Mixed with water. I usually exclude the toughest looking things like banana tops and mango or peach pits.

I think i’m making more compost than I can deal with in my balcony planters. Also…had some difficulty blending this one. Had to stop and stir after attempting to push down with the tamper. The upper portion would not blend as if something was down in the blades…however…that would have typically led to overheating so I doubt anything was stuck. Suffice to say that occasionally one should expect to have to stop and stir if you can see the upper portion not blending.

Mixed. Poured. Stirred. The end.

And it was green…and slushy…and was dumped into the planters. And it was good. :-|  OMG! I actually have something new to say about composting. The more water the better. It blends easier…in the blender, and mixes in the soil easier. A lovely Bianca Gold Hops vine awaits.

-chopped up the thick lemon rinds, and the other usual stuff and added water. No problem. Thick green sludge for the potting soil.

NOTE 3 (environmental benefits)

Can’t believe it! Very little packaging going in to recycling now. Almost 99% veg and fruit waste is composted and going in to my potting soil. It looks like i’ve reduced all waste by over 80%. Continue reading

12~Compost (sticky mystery solved)

Used lots of water…full container of stuff…no sticky residue on the side of the container like last time. So i’ll assume the stickiness last time was from making the coconut milk. Continue reading
