Well, here we go again. I thought of posting a video on worm composting that I made for our girl scouts troop back in May. Now I realize that it is harder than I thought. I have to figure out how to put the video on YouTube so that I can then save it onto here. What a process. But it's fun to learn new things. This is why I want to post the video on the worm composting. I want to show the first video and the one I made today I will upload next. They are short videos but hopefully entertaining and informative to you.
YAY!! I did it.
Composting is so essential on many different levels. You add the browns and the greens. Browns are leaves, paper such as newspaper and magazines, junk mail, letters, anything that is not on glossy paper. Greens are all your vegetable and fruit cuttings. Instead of throwing out that apple core, or the banana peels, or the broccoli or potato skins that you peeled, throw them into a worm bin. This enables the worms to work through these cuttings and make a beautiful black gold that is beneficial to your plants, flowers, garden beds, and soil all around. It doesn't take much time and yet proves itself over and over. Better to do this than add to the landfills.
I take all these scraps and blend them with a little water in my Vitamix. I then put into ziplock bags and throw into the freezer until I'm ready to add to the worm bin. Fast forwarding to today, I don't feed the worms weekly because the population had declined, which I figured out why (the centipede). I feed them once to twice a month now and once the population grows more then I'll start feeding them more.
I hope you found the information useful and maybe it will motivate you to get the worm bin. It doesn't take much space yet is so very efficient. You can find it on my Pages of Interest or at https://unclejimswormfarm.com/?affiliates=84
Please feel free to leave comments as I'd love to hear from you.
Oh, and before I forget, here's the picture of what I dehydrated recently that I blogged about: Peppers, Turmeric, Onions...
