Hi, my first bokashi bucket was ready to be buried so I made a soil factory in a large black plastic tub and closed with the lid. It’s a 60 litre container with a tight fitting lid.
Do I have to drill holes in the container or can I leave it sealed like that? (I’d prefer not to drill holes in the container).
If the container is located outside, on the garden soil, then holes will help. If it is located inside, then you should not drill holes. You do not need an airtight lid, better if it is a loose lid which will allow for air movement at this stage. The more garden soil you can put into the container to start the process the better your results will be as well.
