Composting with Red Wigglers requires bedding material. There needs to be a mixture of green and brown waste. The green waste would be considered the veggie and fruits scraps and the brown waste would be the shredded newspaper/peat moss combination. In the past, I have been using a 50/50 combination for the bedding. This season I’ve changed the ratio to 75% newspaper and 25% peat moss. I want to mix it up a bit.
I am ready to start my day and am very grateful for many things this morning. Earth Day, in my mind, is a time to reflect on what I have been given. I am not sure if many people believe that the Earth and all that she provides is a gift to us. The beauty of this planet is mind blowing. I am often in awe of the seasons and the changes that occur. The falling snow, the wind, the rain and the blooming flower.
Actually I delivered two bins today minus the Super Composting Red Wigglers. The weather this week has been rather silly! On Sunday, it was near 70, and today it was close to 40! Yucky for sure. The weather was not ideal, and I did not feel comfortable setting my red wigglers into their new homes. The worms will be delivered in about 2 weeks. By then, I hope the weather has improved and the nightime lows are above freezing.
