Find the "Journey in Video" headline in the right border.

If you have struggled with worm bin composting, or shyed away from trying it because you think it's too complicated, or maybe you had a bad experience before and don't want to risk it again: then these videos will be for you. Go now and sign up and receive notice of when I post to my podcast. There you will see a growing number of samples of the content you will find in these videos.

Until then, happy worming

Winter<---->Spring<---->Winter<---->Spring

This time of year it's hard for the weather to make up it's mind. You just get to where you're thinking spring and winter hits again. It's not really winter cause the snow is more slush and the temp in the air is definitely warmer. But even so, Ol' Man Winter is still saying, "Not yet."


That's right, we got snow last night. Just a dusting really and it was gone by end of day. Still enough of a reminder to not get too anxious yet.
So I went out to check on the worms tonight, probably only the second time this week. The bins are showing more and more signs of worm population. Can't wait to get my hands in there this week.
Just a reminder, Episode 3 of "As The Worms Turn" will be coming up early this week. Be sure and tune in. We're going to talk about watering the bin, why and how much. And we'll probably talk a bit about food waste and where a majority of our waste ends up.
Organic waste is something that worms can take care of so efficiently. And while the waste is kept from the bowels of the earth, the end product actually feeds the soil and finishes the cycle.
See you next time on "As The Worms Turn"

New Podcast; As The Worms Turn

Hello everybody,



My blogging and website work is getting spread so thin there is not time to do it all like I'd like to.



I have a new podcast. You see I have been playing around with my camcorder and learning how to put together movies. I have a couple out on the web, like youtube, etc. But I'm really happy with my podcast. It's really like a video blog. I'm putting an embedded player over in the side bar. Check it out.



The winter here was tough. The bins froze and I have been working on bringing them out of it.



The podcast is really brand new with only one video, but so many people ask about worming in the colder regions that I though this would be a good place to start.



So go there now and take a look. The first one is a little rough around the edges as I work my way through the learning curve. But they promise to get better. Much better. I will probably expand the podcast beyond worm bin composting to include subjects such as Actively Aerated Compost Tea (AACT), organic gardening, recycling, and environmental issues. I won't get too far off topic.



Eventually, I will be making those videos I have been promising, and those will go out to members only. Remember, if you are interested in hearing about those you will want to get on the notification list.

That's it for now. I'll try to get back more often. Or if you like you can subscribe to my podcast. I'm going to be posting there on a very regular basis. How much easier it is to keep everyone informed when they can just subscribe. I'm going to be having fun whether you're there or not.
