Worm Compost Redo...

Street Sweeper came by
Landfill project
Getting set up
Moving Composter
Household compost, leaves, peat, black gold and whatever I can find 
Maple leaves and good old Peat
Here are the red wrigglers
The white spots are their wrigglers eggs.
Peat and leaves to start
Finished worm castings
Coming together
Molly-Anne is in full bloom
Whoop's left the back gate open
The Street Sweeper was  in the 'hood, I have been working on a land fill where  one of my worm composters was. A perfect chance to do this project.

  2. Rob, I love the idea of composting. I'd really like to make it a reality. Do you use the compost for soil or mulch?

  3. Looks like you've been busy. Like your friends in the last shot. Do they do a lot of damage? They sometimes cut through our yard heading to the river but I guess they don't like what we have to eat.

  4. Love those deer! I bet you have wonderful soil. I have not had a composte bin. At times I think it would be nice, but not sure where it would fit in our yard. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup Thursday.

  5. Hi Rob!

    Those are some big fat worms... wonderful friends to have in the garden, better than the deer. I bet the deer don't come around during hunting season. My DD and SIL get a deer every few years with bows. They live right below Mt. Rainier but they go down closer to Mt. Saint Helens.

    Thanks for sharing this at my party this week!

  7. Hello Rob! I am inspired - I know that your garden plants will flourish with the wonderful castings! Great photo catching the deer! They occasionally visit our garden - fortunately they love my husband's grass and don't venture to my flowers!
    I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

  8. I have been wanting one of these for a while. I used to have one rather large and we did away with it years ago. I discovered one night I was feeding the neighborhood rodents...and I stopped!! I would like to have one with a cover. Happy VTT

  9. Hi Rob,
    I made a worm composting bin with my two oldest boys when they were 5 and under. I was surprised how fast the worms did their job. But, of all of the garden fertilizers I have tried nothing beat the chicken coop dirt we got from my husband's Aunts. What an amazing garden we had that year. The pictures still blow me away. Great job with the worm composting. Thank you for joining me at The Charm of Home.

  11. Hi Rob, What a project, but well worth it. We have a compost bin which works great on our garden. But haven't done a worm compost. Next project... Thanks for sharing on Simple & Sweet Fridays. I'm a New Follower too!

  12. Wish I had those worm castings for my garden beds--lucky you! I grew up on an island--Orcas Island in the San Juans! But I'm a land-lubber now!
