human contribution, TP, spray, sawdust. (in that order)
The sawdust will dry it out but the bacteria should last until the bucket is empty and maybe jump start decomp.

Jane Reed wrote:Ollie, I understand perfectly that your finished, concentrated serum of LAB must be diluted to be used in the gardenor to feed animals. I understand that the dilution ration of the stabilized LAB is 20 to 1. What I don't understand is why the same dilution ratio applies to both stabilized and unstabilized serum, when the stabilized has been diluted by adding equal parts of molasses.
If, for final use, I add 4 tablespoons of stabilized serum to a gallon of water, the amount of serum is half of what I would have in a gallon of water if, instead, I added 4 tablespoons of unstabilized serum, because the 4 tablespoons of stabilized serum is actually 2 TBS of serum and 2 TBS. of molasses. I will accept if the difference makes no difference. But since it seemed to me that there WAS a difference, I had to ask.

Here is an interesting video on growing lacto bacillus naturally and its uses on a farm. Korean farmers have been doing this for sometime. Bryan McGrath thank you.
Forget this weirdo. You guys wanna see something really neat? I just have to take off my shoe .... (hint: it's a tiny ad)
