We started a permaculture vegetable garden last year and I’ve been composting with this method for few month because I think it’s the best way to do it (fast, easy, bring fertility and life activity back).
Unfortunately we have a lot of rats in our backyard and they dig the mulch for the food scrap, witch is fine. But because I don’t wanna attract them in the garden, I changed my strategy.
Now I layer a pile composed of straws, wood chips, comfrey, whatever I’m chopping and trimming and I add the food scrap and coffee ground. Then I shred/mix the pile with the lawn mower and drop it as mulch. So the food scrap is shredded and incorporated to the mulch.
Though, for the purpose of this BB I removed the mulch in a spot one of my beds, I dropped about 1.5 gallon of food scrap and I covered it back with the mulch.
My other ways to use the food scrap is to feed the worm factory then cover the food with shredded paper, and to feed the worm towers of my 2 wicking beds by lifting the straw on top, dropping the food and putting back the straws.
I hope this could be enough to validate this badge.
