To document your completion of the BB, provide the following:
 - a photo of the bucket of kitchen scraps next to the opened mulch
 - a photo of the empty bucket and the new mound of mulch
 - repeat for second bucket
 - describe the volume of your bucket(s) and how full they were

Just chilling at wheaton, doing the BB20 free event.  I put up a sign saying I wanted to use all the food scraps from the fisher Price house for this BB.  We filled up 2 3 gallon buckets at the Fisher Price house and then I went to Cooper Cabin and got 2 more buckets that needed to be composted there as well.   I put them under mulch on hugels at FP house and at Allerton Abbey.  It was about 11 gallons of scraps as the 2 buckets from cooper cabin were just a tad smaller.

Used 2 pans of dishwater about 2 gallons each to water some plants on a hugleculture.  

Soap used:

Oasis Biocompatible Dishwash/All-Purpose https://a.co/d/10mylRF
To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
 - Link to/post the recipe you used (especially the part about the crust)
 - pic of the crust being made
 - pic of the pizza getting it's toppings put on
 - pic of the completed pizza and a slice of pizza
         o showing that the pizza is not burnt and it is cooked all the way through

I'm at the BB 20 event and i used the Mother Earth News recipe.
3 cups of lukewarm water (~100 degrees F). Edit - Water too hot will kill the yeast.
1 1/2 Tbsp Kosher Salt
1 1/2 Tbsp Active Yeast
6 1/2 cups of AP Flour

Mix and allow to stand for 2-5 hours at room temperature in a pot with a lid that is not air tight [it will double in size so pick a big pot]. You can use it right away, but it is easier to work with if you let it sit in the fridge for 3 hours. It can sit in the fridge for up to 2 weeks while you take off portions to use for whatever you want. If you want a sourdough flavor, don't clean the pot when you make the next batch and it will take on more of a sourdough flavor each batch.

I made alot of dough so the boots could have pizza as well.  
Back for redemption since I utterly failed at the first attempt.  Taco Tuesday at Pisher Price House.  I volunteered to do the dishes for redemption (and ice cream!)
I don't know what kind of soap Paul uses but I can guarantee it is biod and all the amazing properties it is supposed to be....

The pan was 12 x 9 x 3. used 324 cubic inches. 1 gallon is 231 cubic inches so I used about a gallon and a half for these dishes.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - wash dishes without a dishwasher
     - use minimal soap
         - must be greywater friendly soap (the soap usually says "greywater safe" or "readily biodegradable")
     - fill a dishwasher with clean dishes using less than 3 gallons of water
         - or approximate equivalent
             - might require five rounds in a small dish rack
         - yes, you are using the dishwasher as a dish drying rack

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
- post a picture of the dirty dishes in the sink
- post a progress picture of the dishes being washed
- post a picture of the completed dishes with obviously less than 3 gallons water used
- describe the soap used, its grey water friendliness, and a link to the verifiable biodegradeable dish soap
- OR post a 2 minute video of you washing the dishes by hand
