Wow! Our strawberries are so tasty. This year, I didn’t tend the garden as much as last year. We bought the strawberry starters last year and incorporated the soil with 40 pounds of worm castings. Unfortunately we forgot to put up a screen to keep the critters away, and they had a feast. This season, I top dressed the garden with 2 inches of worm castings. As you can see, we didn’t put up a screen to keep away the deer. I am not sure why they haven’t been in our yard. I’m thinking the dogs in the hood have kept them away! Any way, WE have been enjoying the berries.
This morning the kids decided to wash the car so I went to get them set up. While they were arguing about the hose, the soap, the sponges…blah, blah, blah….I went to the garden, grabbed some berries and shoved them into their mouths! It helped for a few seconds….. Then I got my phone and snapped these pictures.
Wow that is a lot of worm castings! My class is working on a worm bin to. I think strawberries are good to! How come you started to do a worm bin any way? I think it is cool that you came up with doing a worm bin.
Wow, Thank you for your nice comments! I really love our planet and want to give a little bit back to our planet. I think reducing usable waste like food scraps is a way to help. If food scraps are put into the landfill with all of the other trash, methane gas is produced. There in not enough oxygen in the pile of trash. So keeping the food scraps out of the landfill, I am reducing the amount of methane gas. The worms provide oxygen to the composting process! Pretty cool stuff. The worms are amazing!
Keep on wormin’
Yes very cool stuff what is your favorite part that the worms do? Making straw berry plants? holding them?
