Video: Red Wiggler Worms working in a Compost Pile

chicken coop, Compost Pile, garden, Videos

Hey ever since I started “Lenny’s Worm Farm” ive always been interested in the ways worms play a vital role in gardening. When I started this compost pile a year ago I knew it needed red wigglers, a breed of worm known for its ability to eat and munch on all the good scraps and produce worm castings. I bought 200 and released them hoping for a good turnout. and now I can say I think its happening there are tons of worms in my pile. Oh they just love me ❤

please enjoy this brief video:

DIY Custom Garden Patio-Path

Summer 2015

Needing some more patio space out side, i turned to my chunks of concrete i found buried earlier this year. first i laid them out and adjusted and got them how i wanted. Then i spread mortar powder all through them with a broom. Prolly would advise you mix it properly.
