Growing local

I am so impressed at the rate of reproduction in my compost bin. I went to the time-warp shop (aka Bunnings) and got most of the things I need to build a new BSFL farm.

I am following this blog http://blacksoldierflyblog.com/bsf-bucket-composter-version-2-1/

It's a shame this guy does not deliver to Australia because I certainly spent more the $68 and still forgot a few things. The velcro alone was nearly $20.

Here I am cutting the middle lid in my lovely polka dots pjs ;-D

Mmh the rest will have to wait if I want to meet my work deadline Aaaargh!

End of January.

Aha Task completed! Still waiting for the flies to lay though. Mmm… :L

It seems to host more fruit and house flies than anything else. Sprinkled lime liberally.

Maybe more moisture and more decaying food?

Oh yes and missing the collection box.

Ummm... Valerie... 

I just use a $15, 60 litre bin from Bunnings (complete with lots of holes drilled in).  Chuck my compost in like normal. Admittedly, I leave it a tad wetter than most people would, but I have soldier flies coming out of my ars*** -- compost!  I bought a cheap strainer so I can wash them before I feed them to the fish.
