Bokashi

OrganicallyLala mentioned bokashi in a post and of course I had to do some research: this link gives the basics of how you do bokashi composting: LINK

Bokashi is a fermentation process using a mix of microorganisms to breaking down materials – including dairy and meat products!

aside from writing, my wife hobby is into gardening. in fact, both our front and back part of the house has plenty of flowers of different kinds but most specially orchids since that what she likes best. on my part, i rather prefer vegetable garden than flower garden. we also have some herbal plants as we find it effective specially during stress or muscle spasms.
