"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…"
"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.…"
"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…"
"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…"

"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"
"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…"
"Or schools, maybe. I've actually found some interest in starting a worm compost project next spring with one of our local middle schools. They have a garden that they use as an outdoor classroom, and they're in the process of redesigning a…"
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.
