Lynn Tillson replied to MIKO ROGER's discussion HOW DO YOU KEEP MITES UNDER CONTROL WHEN VERMOCOMPOSTING
"Well said, Mike and Peter. Applies to emails too.  Miko, when I had mites in my bin, I got lucky in that they were white, not red, and reducing moisture did the trick. Aerating has never been a problem - I'm as guilty of not being able to…"

"Gardenweb has a forum for vermicomposting, and there's a thread there from someone who is composting under rabbit cages. You might find something there: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/verm/msg1221275314937.html"

Lynn Tillson replied to Teresa Vermilion's discussion WORM TEA
"Just read the label. If it has sulfur or not should be there. Mine says unsulfured right under the image. If yours has sulfur, you buy the other at any grocery store, in the baking aisle, usually somewhere near the honey and other liquid sweeteners.…"

Lynn Tillson replied to Bob Collinsworth's discussion Surface Feeding vs. Buried Feeding
"Living in New England on a small semi urban lot limits our outdoor growing to roughly May-September, winding down Sept/Octish, gone from November to April. Small lot size means container growing, so tomatoes, peppers, cukes, and ornamentals may or…"

Lynn Tillson replied to Teresa Vermilion's discussion WORM TEA
"Oh, Teresa, do you have houseplants? They benefit from the VC as well as outdoor plants do, you know. Mine have tripled in size in the time I've been feeding them with it. I started in Oct 2012, so I must have gotten some fertilizer somewhere…"

Lynn Tillson replied to Teresa Vermilion's discussion WORM TEA
"Yup, and I would have chimed in sooner, but work has a bad habit of occupying too many hours, dangit! IMHO, the best plan is to make sure a bin stays moist enough for the worms to be really active and eating well, but not so moist that any leachate…"

Lynn Tillson replied to Bob Collinsworth's discussion Surface Feeding vs. Buried Feeding
"On top of the food is what I've been doing, too. And it's been working. I'm just always looking for anything that will work better. What I wish I could find is a way to store finished compost for, oh, several months at least, without…"

Lynn Tillson replied to Connie's discussion What cocoon is this?
"Looks to me just like the Japanese Beetle grubs we get here in New England. No clue if they exist in Peru, but here's another vote for some kind of beetle."

Lynn Tillson replied to Fred's discussion Seedlings and what to do with them!
"Well, that mean I have to try one, then. I've always yo-yoed back and forth between waste of time, and the worst that can happen is they ignore it, and I take it out. Maybe it's all the worms inside that make it crack open. hehe"

Lynn Tillson replied to Fred's discussion Seedlings and what to do with them!
"Really?! I eat a lot of mango and just figured they were too hard/woody/big to add. How long does it take to open?"

Lynn Tillson replied to Bob Collinsworth's discussion Surface Feeding vs. Buried Feeding
"I agree, Patricia. I don't need anything buggy I didn't bring in myself in the house. I'm not sure what to call what I do. I think surface and cover. I went back and read this thread from the beginning, and I also use the "low…"

About Me:
I care about animals, the environment, and my fellow humans. I hate waste, bad manners, and carelessness. I'm new to forums and blogs, but am ready to learn. I think my worms are hard workers and doing a really awesome job helping me get something useful from what I used to throw in the trash.
