Thanks so much to all my amazing customers!! It's been a pleasure getting to know all of you and sending worms off to all corners of the city to turn garbage into gold! I'm taking a temporary hiatus from selling worms to do other things for now, but keep an eye on the website from time to time to see when I'm back. In the meantime, feel free to continue to contact me if you have any questions about vermicomposting. Happy composting!
My zucchini seedlings are getting bigger and stronger by the day thanks to the vermicastings I used in the potting soil! For the world's best seedlings, mix 1 part vermicast to 3-5 parts soil.
Ever tried to get an avocado pit to sprout by using the toothpicks-to-suspend-it-in-a-glass-of-water method and failed? Well, avocado pits love vermicompost and sticking the pits in with your worms is a surefire way to get them to sprout. Just throw your pits into the vermicompost, leave them in with the castings, and come back in a couple of months to find most of them sprouting. This is a picture of just a few of the many sprouted avocados I pulled out of my compost today. Unfortunately you won't be able to look forward to an avocado harvest, but little avocado trees make excellent house plants and are an easy way to bring some green inside your home.
