My first experience with a garden was in my Granny's front yard. I have memories of this magical little space under a canopy of low trees. There were pathways between raised beds full of flowers. I must have been about 3 or 4 years old. My memories of this garden remind me of things I've seen in a magazine. It was absolutely magnificent.
More recently in the past couple of years, I've been experimenting with growing things. I had the brilliant idea to grow…
I finally found some eggs. It was only 3 but im pretty sure there is more. I put my bin outside in the shade this morning cause im having a nit fly problem, but finding the eggs made me stop worrying about the flies.
now im going to try and see if i can catch them hatching.This just gives me more reason to look at them

So I want to start and with a flow through bin. Does anybody have a link on the website to educate me on how to harvest the casings and what the spacing on the grate should be? There are lots of great picture, but how do I harvest?
I would like to know if stems from cut lavender serve well as bedding material (instead of things like straw, and perhaps mixed in with newspaper). The stems are very thin and stiff. I have a lot of the stuff. I believe redwood branchlets are NOT good due to the chemicals and wonder if the same is true for fragrant plants lilke lavender. Anyone tried this or have an opinion?

I recently did a presentation on red worms to a group of 7-year old Boy Scouts. I had a Mega-Inn in the back of my truck and I was a little apprehensive about the trip to the talk. I was visualizing taking a corner too fast and having worms all over the bed of the truck. I didn't make the conversion to the wood frame yet and it still has the PVC piping. I did make it a bit more sturdy by using duct tape and rope to stabilize the frame. Plus tying things down somewhat securely in the bed…Continue

I recently attended a presentation by Dr. Mercola that focused on a number of topics. One that really struck a chord with me was how negative ions in our environment really have a positive effect on your health. The water in your cells converts from H2O to H3O2 and is like a mini battery. Negative ions help recharge your body. You can get these negative ions through…

I just started worm farming. I'm starting out really small. I only have 124 worms. I call them my ghetto worms. They live in a small container for now and as they multiply I will be moving them into a deluxe apartment(still not the 10 gal container). I know they wish I would go to sleep so I can stop looking at them. I know its gonna take time for them to do their magic but I am so excited I look at them all the time. I quess that why I enjoy my small container. Im hoping to be able to…Continue
Recently heavy feeding caught up a bit, bins are a little foul. Mixed the contents up, created an additional bin with fairly dry screened mostly finished compost... Then threw much of the excess food into the new bin along with a couple handfuls of worms.
Bins are prolific, loaded with cocoons, many young worms. Just a few here and there lethargic and slightly swollen. I found one worm being eaten by mites. I might have to bait some of them out of there.

So I am slightly experienced vermicomposter. I have raised red wigglers and more recently a bin of red wigglers mixed with European night crawlers.
My order of Alabama jumpers is maybe coming at the beginning of next week? I put it in on Monday on orderworms.com but haven't been able to get any response whatsoever from the owner :/
In the meantime I just got powdered Dolomite in the mail because I am a heavy vegetable scrap feeder and my bedding is mostly pest…Continue
