Wonder Worman in Cascade Business News

If you’re a local, pick up the latest free edition of the CBN! This issue’s focus was “Women in Business”. Carlos and I put together a PR piece. Actually Carlos wrote most of the article. I am excited to be included among some wonderful women in Central Oregon.

Party Plate Update

About 3 weeks ago, I was given a bin full of compostable cups and plates from a friend who hosted a pretty big party! I posted a blog and wanted to update the worms’ progress with some photos!

Progress is pretty slow, and I think it’s because I put the plates on the top of the bedding. I decided to replace the “newspaper” blanket with the wet party plates.
I do notice some worm casting on top of the plates so they are making their way to the top. The plates are still moist and rather flimsy so they are breaking down.
When I pulled the plates away, I was happy to see the worms feasting on the scraps. This is a good sign.
The plates are not deterring them from doing their good deeds!!
I will continue to update their progress!! So if you have compostable cups and plates, feed them to your red wigglers! Maybe tear some up and mix them in the bedding.
Happy worming!!!

Mysterious Veggie/Fruit plant growing in my garden!

Does anyone know what this is? It looks really healthy and thriving in my veggie garden. I didn’t intentionally plant this. There must have been a seed in my worm castings when I added the amendment to the soil.

I am not sure if I should let it continue or pull it. It reminds me of some sort of squash because there are yellow flowers underneath these massive leaves but nothing else seems to be growing?
If you are out there and reading this could you help me? hmmmmm
Happy Wormin’

Wonder Worman in NYC!

Last month, my hubby got me a ticket to my favorite city in the world, NYC! He was tired of hearing me moan and groan, “I haven’t seen my brothers in over a year!” So he decided I needed to go on a “vacay”. I got on the phone and called my family and my greatest friends from childhood and college! We had the days packed with adventure and craziness! I do love a good time!
Blah, Blah, Blah. I can go on and on about my days/nights.
Back to the purpose of my post! NYC recycles. I had time to roam the city and I came across this trash can. Boy, I love this city!
As I continued my journey across town, I came across this really AWESOME poster! And this really AWESOME restaurant, Otarian on 8th Ave. I love this city even more..is that possible?!
I stopped, read the poster, and took the picture so I could check there site out.
check it out!
They have this cool program called Carbon Karma which rewards you for eating at their restaurants. Once again

I really, really, really, really love this city!
They are a low-carbon restaurant for various reasons. The one I LOVE the most is their composting program! They compost their veggie waste and it’s done in my favorite city in the entire world!
