First stage of the Roach Farm renewal is done.....bottom layer is a mix of Cassia alata branches then those of an Opuntia cactus WITH glochids I am slowly destroying, splash on a few gallons of aged, nasty smelling kitchen gray water, then a thick layer of sweet potato vines, then oak leaves then the jacuzzi cover held in place with blocks. In 3-4 weeks I should be able to remove the cover and see in the greatly compressed layer tons of roaches the chickens will feast on. Within a week they will have scratched it all into organic matter I will add to the bottoms of new Water Wise Container Gardens for summer crops. Waste not want not and finally a use for the covers that came with the free jacuzzi that were in the way for so long. This is the second time I've done this....first time worked VERY well. Cool to see roach protein become egg protein....waste not want not!
