I am trying something new in a worm bin today, adding biodegradable plates and corn based plastic cups. Some blogs and sites claim that it will take about 180 days to decompose. Some also say the corn based plastic cups will not be eaten by the worms and will just break down without them. I am not completely sure if the worms will speed up the process. Knowing that they speed up composting, I think they will do the same with this stuff.
Play Outdoors is a cute kids store in Bend! They were having an outdoor party for kids a few weeks ago. Carlos saw an ad in our local paper and suggested I collect their damaged watermelons after “Watermelon Bowling”! After calling the store and getting the O.K. to pick up the watermelons, I thought…”Cool! My Red Wigglers are gonna be sooo stoked! They love watermelons!
Gavin, my nephew, is visiting over the summer. He could NOT wait to get his hands on a watermelon.
I love his expression!
“No Rules!!!! Except to have FUN!!!!
He was the first kid to smash a watermelon!
Gavin set the stage for complete wreckage!
After a week of feasting, all of these are gone!!!!!
Way, way cool! Yo! (just got back from NYC)
