Like many of you, I love to garden. And with the help of a lot of worm castings, I’m quite successful at it. Last night I was watching some gardening channels on YouTube and stumbled across this site. The site owner, Jeff, talks about using The Worm Inn to solve his moisture problems with plastic bins.
If you are looking for a good gardening website, take a look at Jeff’s video’s. I think you’ll like them.
Do you want more worms, but don’t understand how to attract them? Have you always wondered how to make a worm friendly environment? I get this question asked practically EVERY SINGLE DAY. My answer is always the same, ADD TONS OF ORGANIC MATERIAL TO YOUR SOIL.
Watch this video for a great explanation of how organic material is the key to great soil. If you are specifically interested in the role worms play in creating great soil, simply fast forward to the 4.00 minute mark.
Whenever people ask me what they can do to improve their soil, I always tell them, ADD TONS OF ORGANIC MATTER. If you add leaves in the winter (Several feet is good) they will break down from the winter rains, and you will have the most beautiful Humus you’ve ever seen, plus create a worm friendly environment. Humus is so valuable, I’ve never seen it sold by ANYONE.
Watch this video. Go to the 1:42 mark and listen to what this fellow says about adding leaves to your soil.

I’m always looking for cool and functional ways to hang my Worm Inns. Andrew (Thanks Andrew!) sent in this picture of his Worm Inn MEGA. I have to say that this is one of the absolute best ideas I’ve ever seen.
Hope it’s bolted in well. These MEGA’s can weigh 200 pounds when full.
If you have a creative stand for your MEGA send it in, I’d love to post it.
Alabama Jumper sales have gone through the roof. Word of mouth has taken these worms from obscurity, to becoming the Superstars of the worm world. If you have considered adding Alabama Jumpers to your garden, NOW IS THE TIME.
Why buy now?
Huge capacity. Need 20,000 Jumpers, we’ve got them.
PERFECT shipping conditions around the entire US.
Fall leaves available everywhere (Their favorite food).
Every spring, we get backed up on Jumper orders, but the reality is, the fall is the best time to get your Jumpers into the ground. This way, they can start breaking down your leaves and make wonderful friable soil for you when you plant in the spring. Once spring arrives, it’s really too late to accomplish much (Until the next spring).
Purchase your Jumpers now, or be sorry (and very, very patient) in the spring.
Want to grow giant fruits and veggies that not only look great, but taste great also?
Check out this giant Meyer Lemon, grown on a 3 foot tall tree that produced over 50 lemons this year! The only problem was, I was constantly worried that the tree was going to break due to the weight of the fruit!
Here is a comparison between my green onions, and a store bought green onion.
Do your fruit trees look like this? They should! I’m going to need to thin this pomegranate tree soon, or else I will risk branch’s breaking due to the weight of the fruit that will soon set. No synthetic fertilizer here….just Vermicompost and BIOchar. That’s it.
If you’ve ever wondered, Can I keep a Worm Inn indoors, the answer is absolutely, “YES”!
My friend Anthony sent this pic of a setup at the University of Toronto (Procurement Services lunch room). What a great idea for an out of the way setup. Instead of a tall Inn with a bucket underneath, they’ve simply built a short frame, and put a flower pot saucer underneath.
Anthony’s goal is to get this setup in other departments throughout the University!
