OK, this is an attempt at my first
BB -- seemed like something I could accomplish in short order.
I have a Seaberry stand with six plants that I deep-mulched with
wood chips and
cardboard early this summer and decided they would be a fine recipient for this "
Ruth Stout compost" feeding. Herein, I'm documenting giving the first four of them 2.5 gallons of kitchen waste each. (I stopped with four because coming up with the ten gallons of
compost ran me out, so the last two will have to wait a few weeks, but I'll get them too.)
The first bucket I found was a 15 quart capacity (3.75 gallons) Rubbermaid and I calculated that if I got it 2/3 full, I'd have exactly 2.5 gallons, so I did that four times. It's sort of hard to figure what 2/3 full is and the top of a pile of kitchen scraps isn't exactly even, so I made sure to go a little over each time.
So here's photo-documentation of the four buckets of slop I buried near my four little bushes:
And a little panorama with the location of the newly fed seaberries in the lower left, just for fun:
So, did I do this right?
