s o i l ๐ŸŒฑ Iโ€™ve been adding lots of amendments to my soil because we have very compacted clay here in Virginia. It has great nutrients but poor drainage. So Iโ€™ve slowly added compost, leaf mulch, worm castings, kelp meal and living organic soil with nematodes to my summer cutting garden. I started a worm compost with all of my kitchen scraps. If the soil is happy, the flowers will be happy too. . . . This was one of many illustrations I painted a few years ago for The Wildlife Friendly Vegetable Gardener. Thereโ€™s a great big underground world that is unseen to us. . . . #thewildlifefriendlyvegetablegardener #fieldnotes #inthegarden #downthegardenpath #slowliving #soilmatters #notill #notillgardening #digginginthedirt #summertime #aquarelle #watercolor #watercolour #illustration #bookillustrator #seekinspirecreate #seekthesimplicity #acloserlook #acuriousnature #provinciallife #wormcompost #vermaculture #vermacompost #permaculture #herewegrow #regenerativeagriculture #backyardfarm #cottagegarden #kitchencomposting #savethesoilsavetheworld

Not quite sure about a semi fullsize garden this year..im working on studying #permaculture and so this year we will try pots and some small basics. Keeping water from nature as much as possible..learning about soil composition and worm farming. #vermacompost Seeing that it could rain for most of today and I will be home alone for most of it, I will try to create a blue print of the"DREAM" wanting something and making it happen is hardwork..physically...mentally...and spiritually. But first is to beleive..and then create..and then it becomes. Happy Sunday everyone! The rain can dampen my drive sometimes..but everything has its purpose.. #countrylife #peaceful #nature #doit #rain #permaculture #vermacompost #planning #dreaming #creating #innerwork #outerwork #asitshouldbe #love #hope #drive #bescareddoitanyway #blueprint #happysunday

I have to admit, in the winter months these worms were pretty neglected. In the last month and a bit I've gotten back to making sure that get a healthy amount of food again. I've battled a few potworms, harmless but do they ever take over!! Trying to get the right moisture and ph level again. Today I opened them up to turn the soil and get some air in there and these huge worm bunches were all over. So happy to see the amount of worms that are back and thriving and making glorious soil again ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ›๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒท #compost #vermacompost #soil #makingsoil #potworms #overrun #worms #nowaste #motherearth #hardworkers #happyworms #kitchencomposting #familyfun

These lil peppers have sat on this sprouting table in an old plastic tote for about two years now. Regular additions of our vermacompost covered by palm mulch keeps it pumping out these excellent flavored chiliโ€™s. ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผโค๏ธ ๐ŸŒถ ๐ŸŽ„ ๐Ÿ’ก #NoSprayHawaii #growfoodtoeat #growagarden #thaichili #growsomethinggreen #urbangardenersrepublic #happyhomesteadinglife #happyhomesteading #epicgarden #ilovespice #vermacompostrocks #vermacompost #healthysoil

Sweet.... finally got some sweet peppers ripening to add to those super spicy ones. These corbaci peppers are great to dry and add to a mix pepper flakes. Great flavor and amazing way to add color to any homemade dish! ๐ŸŒฑ ๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿฅช๐Ÿฅ˜๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿœ #nosprayhawaii #sweetpeppers #corbaci #growfood #epicgardening #growsomethinggreen #urbangardenersrepublic #happyhomesteading #vermacompost @hfuuofficial #thegardenguy #permaculture #nochemicals #pesticidefree #growinginthetropics #myfoodforest #needaresturant #eatwhatyougrow #gardenharvest #

๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒฟ A little while back I posted a photo asking you to guess why I had a bag of dirt, well here's why, in that bag of dirt were over 150 composting worms! I had planned to share with you how I set up my #wormfactory360 but unfortunately my video got deleted so I havent really talked about it. I do plan on doing an update date video in the near future but for now here is what Stella and I did with it today: ๐ŸŒฑ We wet down the soil with a spray bottle. ๐ŸŒฑ Turned the soil to mix up the produce that hasnt broken down yet. ๐ŸŒฑ Ground up some egg shells in the blender that we had been saving. ๐ŸŒฑ Sprinkled our ground eggshells into our soil and gave it another good mix. ๐ŸŒฑ Added in a few stawberry tops I had from lunch today. ๐ŸŒฑ Covered up the soil with damp newspaper and put my composter back away in the closet. So right now I don't add all my kitchen scraps to my composter as I dont have enough worms to keep up with our supply of compost, currently I am working on keeping them happy and healthy so they will produce more worms and be able to keep up with supply in the future. If your wondering why you should cover them up with wet newspaper is so the worms will come to the surface of the soil and eat any produce that would be tossed on top. Big thanks to my little helper for helping mommy out โค

Today I had the rare opportunity to visit a farm in Lonavala India. About 75 kilometers from Pune. It was super fantastic totally amazing!!! So my next few posts will most definitely be about my day with my friend Devang. Thank you D, for a most beautiful experience. The farm Ishamangal. Their mission, to work with nature not against her! They are growing a number of Ayurvedic herbs and also have Desi cows...more about them later no doubt! Verma composting and are implementing a number of permaculture prin! I hope you enjoy the next bit of my thread! #pune #indiafarmer #permacultureindia #ayuvedicherbs #ayurvedicmedicine #ayurvedaindia #desicow #ghee #composting #vermacompost #sustainablefarming #gomutra #ghee #shatavari

So grateful for these humble teachers as they continue to heal the ground beneath my feet. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข "The plough is one of the most ancient and most valuable of man's inventions, but long before he existed, the land was in fact regularly ploughed, and still continues to be ploughed by earthworms. It may be doubted whether there are many other animals which have played so important a part in the history of the world as have these lowly organised creatures." #charlesdarwin #earthstewards #vermiculture #permaculturepioneers #soilsoldiers #redwigglers #vermacompost #dmv

They are ripening ~ been having a difficult time with these rocoto peppers- they do not like the valley moisture! But hey- tucking them in the bed of leafy greens and herbs seems to have kept it dry enough~ bring on the spice, these are perfect for spicing up a round of sweet pickled peppers! โค๏ธ๐ŸŒถ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฅ—๐Ÿฅ˜๐Ÿคค #NoSprayHawaii #eatwhatyougrow #growingfood #rocotopeppers #ProbablyNotGonnaGrowAgain #GrowWhatGrowsWell #livingthegoodlife #eatinggood #foodcomesfromfarmers #knowyourgrower #knowyourworth #hotpeppers #raisedbeds #healthysoil

I never thought I'd ever be this excited about dirt. But I made this huge bin of amazing dirt!!! Well....I fed the worms that worked their butts off to make it at least ๐Ÿ˜‹ I've heard some complaints about the new #greenbin in Calgary and how difficult it is (it isnt) My little family made this, put way less trash in the landfill and probably helped to make us eat better more often because I knew I had these little worms to feed (and can they eat!!) If my tiny family can make this big difference, imagine what a family of 4 or more can do!!! Now to find a place for this gorgeous brown gold โค๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒŽ ๐Ÿ› #yyc #apartmentcompost #indoorcomposting #browngold #environment #motherearth #makelesstrash #takecare #help #calgaryisgreen #lovethis #worms #vermacompost #proud #hungryworms #youshouldtryit #excited

This plant was starting to thin out about five months ago. I suggested Nature's Finest Castings and within two weeks The second photo was sent. The third photo is with Nature's Finest Worm Tea made from our castings which is applied every 6 weeks for maintaining a healthy plant. Thank You Wanda Bies The power of poop!! #organicfertilizer #wormcastings #vermacompost #wormtea #watchyourgardengrow
