The correct formula is, 3.1416 * Radius * Radius * Height

Knowing that volume has made measuring ingredients for MM much simpler!

For example, if I have six composts to mix, I need a 1/2 bucket of each, or in other words, 3 five-gallon buckets to make two cubic feet.

1.5 buckets more, and I have three cubic feet.

3 x .668 = 2.004 (cubic feet). Therefore, 12 five-gallon buckets make 8 cubic feet (rounded off).

To simplify mattes further, one needs 4 pails each of coarse vermiculite, peat moss, and at least 5 composts for each 4'x4' x 6" box.

cubic feet in a 5 gallon bucket ? Empty Easy Measure

Post  docguy 10/11/2013, 3:20 pm

Hi,
1 five gal bucket = 2/3 cu ft.
4 five gal bucket = 2-2/3 cu ft.
4 one gal buckets each of 5 different composts = 2-2/3 cu ft.
12 five gal buckets = 8 cu ft.   

Sooo, Mix 4 one gal buckets of each of your composts first.  Then add 5 five gal buckets of vermiculite and 5 five gal buckets of peat moss .  Mix well.  (I want to wet the peat moss before I add to mix so it doesn't settle as much).  = Mel's Mix.  Worm casting added later as additive. 

For TTSFG, use one gal bucket to transfer mix to SFG.  (wet mix gets mighty heavy)

So long as the sides are a parallel cylinder, it gets a bit more interesting with a tapered wall bucket .Embarassed

The explanation SHOULD have read:

Add 4 five gallon buckets of vermiculite and four 5 gallon buckets of peat moss .  Sorry.
