I love composting with Bokashi, it means I can compost raw meat, raw fish, dairy, cooked meat and fish as well as all the other items which go into a compost heap.
Bokashi means I have even less waste heading for landfill coming out of my kitchen and I already use a worm composter, my chickens and a traditional compost heap.
I love my Bokashi composter so much, I want you guys to try it too!
The lovely people behind Organic Plant Magic sent me some of their all purpose plant food for free for me to try and write a review about.
The product came in 1/2 pound bag which can be added to soil, seed, roots, sprayer, watering can and even, irrigation systems. This little pouch can make over 32 gallons of non-toxic, chemical free organic plant food.
