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)
What an unusual day! Bend got about 4 inches of snow! I did not want to disturb the Red Wigglers but had a bunch of kitchen waste that needed to go some where! Usually if we have a lot of snow, I don’t bother the worms and leave the snow on top of the bins for natural insulation. I felt comfortable about going in the bins because this weeks forecast will be in the mid 60s.
I didn’t think the worms would be this active. I pulled away the watermelon which was very, very mushy and saw this!! The worms were underneath feasting on the watermelon. Not much has changed with the other food waste.
I look forward to seeing the change when the temperature rises this week.
