We have WORMS!!!
1lb of red wigglers to be exact. All courtesy of Kyle Harrell of Texas Red Worms, who was awesome to work with. He met up with me and Casey, explained what worm eggs look like and how to care for the little wriggly guys that had already hatched. Then we swapped money for worms and off we went.
Seriously, this is the most important thing to happen to this fledgling farm enterprise. Soil-makers. Rich, delicious, hummus-y, topsoil makers. Do you know how much compost costs? If you’re sitting at home thinking about growing so much as a few leaves of basil: START COMPOSTING NOW. Hoard nitrogenous materials like it’s your job. Get some wiggly guys and stop tossing out your veg and fruit scraps. Stop referring to anything compostable as waste or trash.
Here’s hoping I don’t kill them.
