If You're Worm Composting for Your Gardening Efforts...

If you're worm composting for the purpose of having a better garden this year, then let me remind you, that is only part of the picture.

Castings are definitely the very best when it comes to soil ammendment, but it is not all you have to figure into the equation.

Starting early when you live up North is sometimes the only answer to getting a good harvest. And I would imagine that where it gets hot, it would be beneficial to start early as well.

No doubt about it, where-ever you live, you're going to get a more bountiful harvest if you get a jump on the gardening season. Even if you already get a good harvest from a product maybe you could get enough of a season to actually be able to plant a second crop, or even a third.

If you are planning your garden space well, feeding your soil and keeping it healthy there is much more you can get out of a square foot of space.

When you work so hard all season weeding, watering, feeding and staying on the look out for pests and disease, how disheartening is it for you to only get a handful of produce for your efforts?

Put a little more effort into getting an early start and your efforts will be rewarded many times over.

The gardening season is just around the corner and the best way to get a
jump on the season

is to start indoors. Get those seeds started while Ol' Man Winter
is still raging and you'll be

way ahead of the pack.

Use castings in your seed starting mix and you'll have what seems like a miracle right before your eyes.

I'm starting a new Worm Bin Composting blog.

I happened across a forum called There seems to be alot of really great people there, the lay-out is easy to follow and interesting. Not the ordinary, run-of-the-mill forum.
And they also have the option of starting a blog, which is also easy to set up. They didn't seem to have anyone really talking about worm bin composting so I started a new topic on it and set myself up a blog as well.

I would like to invite you over to check it out.

I will not be abandoning this blog. The two are completely different. There is much more interaction over at GardenStew so I will take the lead of all the people who ask questions and have things to say.

This blog will remain a step-by-step process of what's happening with my worm bins.

I will be posting an up-date soon as the weather has been very frigid here. I want to share with you how the bins have been doing.

The last time I was out tending the worms it was a mild day just before the frigid temperatures hit. It was the perfect time to get out there and turn the bins, working some of the fresh material down into the composting material to try and generate some heat. It worked...I had turned all the bins down to 50, the temperature plummeted to the single digits, and the bins were reading 64 degrees, so composting definitely going on in the bins. The worms should be happy. Won't know how happy until the temps get back up to where I feel like being out there for an extended amount of time.
Where good things come from for the body and soil.
