Ok, by then, I’d already planted up my garden. Whoops. So for fun, I spread it around next to the side fence, and planted The Three Sisters in it.
For those wondering, The Three Sisters is corn, beans, and squash. In this case, I used Renee’s Garden seeds, which are Indian corn, red runner beans, and sugar pumpkins. And they grew. Here’s how they looked in the beginning.
Here’s how it looks now!
What really surprised me was this:
So yes, I’ve started another pile in the composter. The gardener isn’t putting clippings into the composter, so I’m not sure what’s going to happen or how much I’ll have. I may buy some straw to add in. And some well aged manure. Next growing season, I’ll put the manure on the asparagus patch.
And I’ll make compost tea for the rest of the plants. What’s compost tea? Find out next time right here on losgatosgirl.com
OK, with that headline, I was looking for something way funnier or way kinkier...
We've gone with worm composters, as there is not room in our plot for a real composter. Hmm, do you have the rotating one that doesn't even touch the ground? We might have room for that, but don't you need the stuff to be in contact with the ground to get enough microbes to break it all down? I am looking for options since the worms just do not eat ENOUGH.
I don't know what happens. I put it in & when I peek, I sometimes see it moving like it's alive. They look kind of like mealworms, and I haven't a clue where they come from....
