The Compost Is Alive!

Worm Farming

Click the link at the bottom to see what happens when worm compost is added to a banana tree:

Our two plastic worm composting bins are getting rather full. I should have done some emptying in fall, but never got around to it. Worm compost is still great for the indoor houseplants though, and I had a big hole to fill in the banana plant pot. After being away for a few days last week, I came home to find this green mass at the bottom of the banana trees. A multitude of tomato and squash/cucumber seedlings have pushed their way up towards sunshine. The composted material in the worm boxes doesn’t exact heat up enough to kill seeds, but that’s okay. It’s all just kitchen scraps and not weeds.
