Are these beautiful castings, or what? Finished castings, straight out of the system. No playing with mud, or worse….blocks that you have to chip before you can use them because the castings have turned into pseudo concrete!

The Lazy Man’s Way To Grow Strawberries Revisited

Monday, September 12th, 2011

If you remember, last year I planted my strawberries in a raised bed. I did something special to make picking easy…and that was placing a layer of weed stop on top of my raised bed, and simply poking holes every few feet to insert my berry plants.

Now, the plants are putting out runners ALL over! The berries themselves are sweet like candy. The next harvest is going to be incredible!

I got a SWARM of flies, and I’m excited!

If you’ve ever raised Black Soldier Fly grubs, you know the frustration of watching them turn into Black Soldier Flies, and flying away…instead of coming back to lay their eggs where you want them to.  Introducing the BSF Trap.  It is a commercially made trap for containing Black Soldier Flies!  No longer will you watch your investment fly away looking for a spot to lay their valuable eggs.  

Now you can raise Black Soldier Fly Larve in your garage, your bedroom, even your kitchen!   Think of what you could do with thousands of Black Soldier Fly Larve!  Raise your own BSFL easily, simply, smartly!

Jumpers Update!

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

I recently received this email regarding his Jumpers from my friend Bob in sweltering Kansas …

You would be proud of me.  I have not disturbed the worms since my last e mail to you, until yesterday at least.  I dug 3 holes and every hole was teaming with worms, all sizes, and wow more active than ever in this hot weather, they did not like the heat and would just disappear into the ground as quick as they hit it. I think I will start charging to watch the jumpers.  Almost everyone in town keeps asking how the jumpers are doing.  Now that tells you how little it takes to entertain a small town.  The wigglers have adapted to the grass clippings mixed with cardboard and are also multiplying.

So all is well in Kansas, just HOT right now.

Holy Smokes, It’s ALL Gone!

Monday, July 25th, 2011

It was here last week, but it’s long gone now!  Just wanted to share how fast the worms processed last weeks melon rind feast.  Take a look at the picture below if you have forgotten just how much food there was in the Inn!  The corn cobs are still hanging around, but they break down much slower, so that is to be expected.

Just how much waste would stay out of the landfill if everyone had a Worm Inn?

Feeding The Worm Inn

Monday, July 18th, 2011

It’s been awhile since I posted about my Worm Inn, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to now.  We had family over this weekend and a big bbq.  Summer fruits are always a big hit, so we made a huge fruit salad…..leaving LOTS of scraps for the worms.

You can see how many produce scraps I was able to process all at once.  This is where The Worm Inn differs from other systems.  If you try putting this much in a plastic tub,  you are pretty much guaranteed to create a sewer and kill your worms quickly.  The Worm Inn, because of it’s breathability can easily handle a large amount of scraps (As long as you have plenty of bedding in your Inn).

I didn’t show a picture of the most important part!  Cover these scraps thoroughly with damp newspaper strips, or you’re going to invite every fruit fly in the neighborhood to the party!
