Urban Composting Experiment: You CAN do this!

in homesteading •  4 months ago

I tried using a 5 gallon bucket for compost on my balcony once and it molded. I figured it was too wet from all my coffee grinds (I was dumping them in wet from a French press), but also I just had the one bucket - are you putting one bucket inside another with drain holes? I haven't tried again since.

Check out this DIY bucket build method I posted about a few days ago, and make sure you are stirring it regularly to aerate it. With the small buckets, mold is a big factor that the stirring and the aforementioned bucket build should help deter. Also, if you are adding a lot of wet items, a bit of sawdust or dried leaves can help balance that humidity out.

Try it again and let me know how it goes!!

Alright, I will try this! :) Thanks for the tutorials!
