October Garden

I pulled out two tomato plants that were doing nothing. Hung one upside down in the garage and the other is in the compost. One is still in the garden, I trimmed lots of branches w/ no or small fruit. I want the remaining large tomatoes to ripen , I don't need any more to flower. I'm going to start wrapping it up at night w/ hot water bottles.

Started a second compost pile. The good thing about mowing OPBL is it leaves lots of OM on the lawn too! I dumped a few inches of leaves on… Continue

Well my life in the Navy is even more in limbo than it was the last year. I'm ineligible to reenlist in my rate due to medical conditions, so I've submitted a force conversion package. I'll either get picked up for another rate or told to seperate. Maybe it's just me, but since medical conditions incurred on duty have prevented me from doing the job I was trained for, I was expecting a medical separation, but no I have 7-10 days to reenlist or separate and can't reenlist. So I'm applying for a… Continue

How things have changed

My how things change. I remember just a few short years ago I was coveting my neighbors extra garbage can. Mine would over flow and I thought how great that they have two curbside cans. Now I covet my neighbors leaves and lawn clippings. They leave them out in clear plastic bags for the city compost, and I think If I weren't moving I'd grab that for my compost! Now days my garbage can goes out half full, some weeks I forget and it just doesn't matter, it'll wait till the next week and still not… Continue

BSF Larvae

I'm pretty sure I introduced these by accident. I started w/ a pile of weeds when I dug out my garden. I noticed these in the soil and thought they were grubs. I eventually sifted the soil of of the weed pile and made some hot compost bins, those failed miserably and started to stink so I found out about and converted them to worm bins. I pulled these guys out when I found them, but there were alot. Against the rules, there is a fair amount of soil mixed into my bedding, the worms seem to have… Continue

Not sure what you mean by trading gd communities, but it sounds interesting. :)
No I have not been able to download concerts. I'm not sure how to use bit torrents. But I have seen them in that format.
Went to a Micky Hart concert a few weeks ago they said it would be available on the net.
Do you know anything about that kind of stuff?

Thanks RJ! The community worm sharing attitude of this verimcomposting network is certainly rubbing off on me.

Hi RJ. I've been working on the wormwiki. My question is about the 'how to set up a bin' page. You added links to the boreal wormer (GREAT IDEA!), and you also added a page 'flow through rubbermaid bin'. I'm not sure what you mean by that. I've added bits and pieces to all of the other links. I hope you don't mind! :-)
