I would HIGHLY recommend checking into Bokashi Composting. I do Bokashi here for my fruits & veggies. It's all done in an airtight (NO smell!) container using effective micro-organisms. It will quickly compost down the kelp to a "sludge" that will not have a bad odor (Bokashi smells kind of pungent but not foul) and, during the process, it leaches a "tea" that can be diluted and used to build the micro-organisms in the soil.
I would need more. My composters are circles made of fencing wire that hold several hundred gallons each and they’re both full to the top so I’m going to start a fresh one soon.
Of course the concept is simple - some sort of inoculate of beneficial microbes (that you buy) and an airtight container to stew the the compost in anaerobically, and a tap on the bottom to drain the juice off daily. I don’t like that last part ‘daily’ so much, but the rest sounds really cool, including the juice. I’m thinking that the
concept could be jerry-rigged to suit me more.
