Grapevines, cilantro, and compost!

Compost Pile, garden

I bought these grape vines 2-3 years ago and put them at my parents. Since the vines haven’t really taken off yet they’ve been moved and battered. Finally I think I’ve found a spot they’ll do good!

They are growing up my wood made structure im sure there’s a name for it but for now we’ll call it a topiary. 

Look at my compost pile tearing it up!!! Just a hustling through my shreds of scrap and forming Rich fertile soil!!!


And my cilantro and just kicking in gear! We’ve had a few storms and the thunder and lightning really treated them right! They’re kicking it out! 

Please enjoy

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:

Thanks

Down with the old coop in with the new coop

chicken coop, Compost Pile

Hey all I got some time to finally complete the chickens new residence! They are living good in this quant lil toasty shack. Waters clean and the food plentiful. Got to smash up the old eyesore of a “coop” where they used to live. 

All that rich fertile chicken scat made its way to the compost pile before demolitionthe birds were setting into there new breezy lower level. Seem to be liking it, I already got one eggs out of the new nesting box location.
That rich fertile chicken poo will provide bountiful yields this year. People say that chicken poop can burn your plants however I’m not sure that’s the case, others online report the opposite.

Lots of people say aging the manure is best choice for good results. I guess just try try and try again. You’ll figure out what works out back there yonder.

Keep on trucking

Compost keeps on going!!

Compost Pile, Fall 2015

I brought home these rotten pumpkins just knowing theyd be great for the compost! if i keep feeding it like this its going to be one heck of a pile come spring. release red wiggler worms into it earlier this year but when they came in the mail they seemed un living. hoping if i get more that are healthier maybe ill be able to get worms out the pile and go fishing!
