I have my first worm farm up and running. I decided last week that worm farming was something i could accomplish that would help our gardening efforts with very little cost other than the initial expense. I did not purchase those huge 200 dollar worm farms you see offered on the Internet. I purchased a small "student" farm box---an order of red wiggler worms---and am planning on using either the small student box with possibly one of our plastic storage containers as the farm(s). One of the reason is that I'm not sure how many of the worms i ordered will survive the trip to me--and actually how many are in a shipment?
So i will try to be prepared for small or large---------------
One places damp paper/newspaper---a small amount of bottom soil, the worms and household vegetable matter into the farm---the worms eat the throw away stuff---and produce casings with is most excellent compost as well as what is called "tea" run off moisture that is also excellent fertilizer. There is literally no downside to this process as long as your worms are healthy, you feed them the right material (for example no acids) keep them moist and do not overfeed....their little world will work perfectly for our garden. This will without a doubt turn interesting in one way or another.....i am hoping for perfection with my farming of worms.....
My Swiss Paratrooper bicycle is in and i am in the process of assembly and fine tuning. It is excellent I am very happy with the purchase. I am taking my time setting the bike up for several reasons---i am going to stop smoking next week on my vacation and i want to have stopped prior to riding the bicycle. Secondly I am just enjoying playing Wright Bros. Bicycle mechanic for as long as i can! It's very enjoyable to work on a bicycle again after so many years.
My elderly, but as it turns out-perfect, Palm Pilot M105 bargain is in...works and looks beautiful--absolutely no problems with what it does and with what it is supposed to do---and i am already loving it for it's notepad, calendar and to do lists. It's so easy to take to meetings and jot down the stupid little things you get assigned to do...I love the little machine, i love the concept and i love being able to make a old thing have a place in my protocol.
