Building my compost to be something of strength and performance.

Compost Pile, garden

Hey all I just thought I’d share a few pics of my compost pile. It’s really florishing right now, I dump scraps in it so frequently its loving life. Bannana leaves, strawberry ends, egg shells, pumpkins , celery heads, cucberskins. Then my worms come along and just divour that into fertile fertil castings!

Smashed thirty pumpkins in it last year and now they’re sprouting!!! May tossed them under but might keep a few as I like pumpkins and mysteries of which kind it could be.

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!

Video: Red Wiggler Worms working in a Compost Pile

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:

Worms in the compost!!

Compost Pile, Winter 2015

So I cleaned the coop out yesterday all the chicken floor was fine fine brown powder! I scooped out about 3 buckets full and put on the compost pile! So you know I gave it a good tossing and realized I’ve got tons of worms out there. This compost is going to be great by spring! Literally tossed it 4 times and saw zillions of these worms I put in the summer time. The worms feed on my food waste and poop out worm castings! Worm castings along with the micro organisms all create a fertile soil. I’m so glad cause I put these worms in the summer and never saw them but now they’re flourishing. Redwigglers is the breed of worms I like to compost with, they work the fastest. And breed like worms, they lay things called pods frequent as heck, and then each pod can produce up to three worms! I’ll try to look the numbers up again. But trust me it’s worth it to add them to your comspost pile!
