Worm Poo

Just an update on the worm bin:

The worms are multiplying like crazy! And eating all my kitchen scraps. And making me some very fine fertilizer! I like to think of it as 'wormanure' - but when you're that low on the food chain, you can pretty much just call your poo DIRT.

This DIRT, this veritable smorgasbord of used-to-be veggie peels from the garden, has some mighty fine properties, which you can read here.

Last week, I planted my fall garden, replete with worm poo in the rows. I've already got carrots, peas, spinach, lettuce and broccoli sprouting!

I'll try to post a before/after picture soon!
