yolos wrote:The last time I tried to do any composting in the actual beds, the ants found it and made a big home.  I buried scrapes in the bed and let them sit over the winter and that was a mistake for me.  So my question is, will the bokashi attract ants.  They are all over my property and I just can't get rid of them.

I have never seen anything bother the fully fermented Bokashi. Because of the anaerobic composting process (fermenting) the finished product is not attractive to animals nor insects.  I use Bokashi primarily for winter composting, since I can do it inside while it is zero or below outdoors.  I use 3 different 5-gallon Bokashi buckets. When the third one is full I empty the first one into the outdoor compost bin, where it sits until the weather warms enough to begin aerobic composting, and begin using the empty bucket to start a new Bokashi bucket.

Why don’t you compost at least kitchen scraps?

Do you mean using the Bokashi container? I would have to bury it in unused beds, which means only winter in 2 or 3 small beds. I sold off my tumbler and 3'x3'x3' cage 3 summers ago.

Started the Winter Composting mode, since it is too cold to maintain an active compost bin outdoors. For me, that means starting up the Bokashi buckets, and keeping them going until the Spring weather warms. I moved the Bokashi buckets to the greenhouse instead of doing the composting indoors as I have done previous years. Since I visit the greenhouse every day, it just means taking the kitchen scraps out to the greenhouse with me when I go.

The first bucket on the left is about half full already.
