Just getting into this stuff and really trying to figure it all out. My gardening experience is work organics into the soil, keep the plants watered, keep the weeds down, and you get vegtables.
Working on a project now that I have a rather limited number years to get as close to perfect as I can.
(I chose my screen name carefully and have a horrible pragmatic streak in me - I have to rip everything apart and put it all back togeather again before I feel like I understand it and am comfortable with it.)
Just ran into brewing compost teas and the like and am trying to avoid hours of research.
The potentially insane idea:
Run all the coffee grounds, veg & fruit scraps, etc. threw a blender with water down to a thin slurry.
Pour it into a 5 gallon bucket with large aeration stones and an over sized aquarium air pump and bubble the hell out of it.
Is it going to turn into a stench factory if I keep it at 50*-60*F in the basement?
Will I get anything useful out of it in a short period of time or am I just making a mess?
Do I need to do something along the lines of 4 parts “browns” to 1 part “greens”?
Would adding simple sugars / starches and yeast help?
End result I am looking for is something to feed strawberry plants in SIPs (6 plants to 9 gallons of mix).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and you need not be gentle with the “2x4 of Enlightenment” if application on the side of my head is necessary.
