Since I live alone, I do not accumulate enough scraps to fill the bucket in a couple of weeks.  How long is it ok to keep filling the bucket before I seal it?

If you don’t fill your bin every 2 weeks, don’t worry. You have two options:
1. Continue to add food waste and bokashi bran until your bin is full (the fermenting food waste can stay in your bokashi bucket for much longer than the minimum of 2 weeks).
2. After 2 weeks, cover your food waste in your first bucket and start working on your next bokashi bucket. To prevent air getting to your fermenting food waste make sure to cover with a plastic bag, piece of cardboard or kitchen plate.
Your preferred option will likely depend on how quickly you want to add the pre-compost to your soil and start seeing the benefits of your bokashi compost in your garden.
