4 Watermellons Can't Be All Bad
So I'm a firm believer in if your bin has more than a single drip of water a day you are an evil person. :-)
Then my flow through was looking a bit dry so the next 4 parties I went to in a few weeks time the people got the insides and the worms the outsides of whole watermellon.
My bin is only 8 gallons. I filled it up. Added egg carton until it was mounded over. Then changed to putting the drippings into the 25 - 30 gallon curing bucket. By the 4th watermellon it was like a race horse. I was recirculating the drippings back up top a few times a day. Some went into the curing bucket along with the rinds I could not fit into the FTB. Flow Through Bin. Watermellon rind "melts" pretty quickly after the first week. My curing bucket is probably muddy. I might put that material back through the FTB for fun. Deciding I had had way enough fun the drippings were put on a gallon of natural wood charcoal from Whole Foods. It might take months before the char gains any water. It fights absorbing water. By then I hope I can dump the soggy char into a dry FTB. Sort of balancing out the wet seasons, watermellon and pumpkin with the dry seasons.
