Vermicomposting & Worm Bins

Vermicomposting & Worm Bins

Vermicompost is the product or process of composting using various worms, usually red wigglers, white worms, and other earthworms to create a heterogeneous mixture of decomposing vegetable or food waste, bedding materials, and vermicast. What do you do when you can't have a compost pile at your rental and, equally, can't live with the guilt about wasting the scraps that can't…

2015 Flock Additions – Marans

2015 Flock Additions – Marans

For a short while this winter I thought that, for the first time in years, we wouldn't add any new chicks to the flock this year. With all of the transitions and upheaval, I guess I was thinking that adding some Newbies to the mix might not be the best idea this spring. Luckily, I was wrong :-) Really, is…

Practice

I'm practicing being comfortable with imperfection and not getting stuck on details or preconceived notions. Trust me, this is a practice for me.

I am, however,…

There’s Just Something About a Snow Day!

As a kid, Snow Days were the best part of winter.  The level of excitement brought on by the cancellation of school was almost uncontrollable.  There was a Snow Man to build, sledding to be done and hot chocolate to drink after you'd played so hard your fingers were almost too frozen to even hold onto the mug of chocolatey, creamy,…
Six Acres and a Container Garden?

Six Acres and a Container Garden?

I wouldn't necessarily call it Buyers Remorse, because I am happy with the move we've made from the city to a more rural area... And we didn't buy a new property in our move, we're renters. So, instead I'll call it an Incredibly Steep Learning Curve. Over the course of several years, we'd built all the infrastructure, established all the…
