I started the morning in my garden- as usual. If you see earthworms in your soil that means everything in your soil food web is doing well. This rich soil is going to be used in a new in-ground bed- coming soon. 🤙🏾 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• • • • • • • • • • • #EdibleLandscape #EdibleLandscaping #SustainableLandscaping #MasterGardener #GardenCoach #Permaculture #Zone9A #SustainableGardening #Houston #GYO #HoustonTxBlack #TexasGarden #SoilScience #UrbanOrganicGardener #UrbanGardener #Wormcastings #FallGarden #EpicGardening #HomeGardening #SustainableAgriculture #OrganicGardener #OrganicGardening #GardenGram #TheHappyGardeningLife #GardeningLife #Soil #InMyBackyard #GardeningTime #Earthworms #OrganicVeg

Can't believe our planting season is coming to a close.. Here are a few image recaps, from this past season. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do! All isn't lost with Fall fast approaching, as we are ramping up for the Autumn season. Particularly replenishing your soil with microbes, natural amendments, nutrients and organic matter to refresh and renew your soil when spring comes around. #urbanpasturewormcastings #worms #wormcastings #microbes #microorganisms

[Waste Reduction Update] Tomatillo Husks and a couple of pieces of eggplant are left. Worms have demolished most of what I have given in 11 days! ... this will be the last feeding before I split the bins.

Made a modification to the 20L pots in preparation for training the autoflowers. I usually manifold style my plants. I've heard not to top autos but I trust @growweedeasy and she says it can be done, so that's what we are going to do to maximize yield. I used (8) 1 1/4in medium screw eyes to rim around the pot. I predrilled holes with a 1/8in drill bit to make it easy to screw the eyes in. @cannagrowers #cannagrowers #cannabiscommunity #cannabis #cannabisculture #420 #cannabiscup #cannabislife #cannabis420 #cannabissociety #cannabisheals #cannabiscures #marijuana #cannabisdestiny #weed #cannabisdaily #weedporn #thc #hightimes #cannabischannel #cannabis4us #cannabislifestyle #cannabisphotography #cannabisclub #ganja #cannabisqueenz #weedstagram420 #maryjane #weedstagram #cannabisconnoisseur #wormcastings

Happy Labour Day Weekend Everyone Labour day here in NZ is a public holiday which commemorates the right for workers to have an 8 hour work day. The first official Labour Day public holiday in New Zealand was celebrated on the second Wednesday in October in 1900. The holiday was moved to the fourth Monday of October in 1910 has remained on this date since then. It is the last public holiday before Christmas and hopefully it is a fine weekend. Many people go away, and for others it is a great weekend to plant a lot of different varieties of plants in the garden. Like giant pumpkins. I got out into the Tiny Patch today and added a bunch of @my.noke earthworm castings which looked great. One of the benefits of the Tiny Patch is how easy it is to add product and mix it in with my Weedo. The Weedo is like a small blender head on the end of a shaft that attaches to a cordless drill, it makes mixing and aerating the the soil a breeze, and can easily remove weeds as well. A video and blog post will be out next week showing everything I got up to today. . . . . . #giantpumpkins #giantpumpkin #giantpumpkinsnz #giantpumpkinnz #nz #newzealand #giantpumpkingrower #growinggiantpumpkins #tinypatchnz #mynoke #wormcastings #worms #castings #pumpkingrowing #pumpkins #giantpumpkinprep #earthwormcastings #labourday #labourdayweekend #publicholiday #dayoffwork #fineweather #nz #gardening #garden #growinggiants #weedo #weedotool #growinggiant #pumpkinprep

Leachate or Wormtea? . There's so much contradictory information out there it's hard to know what to believe. . As far as I'm concerned, worm tea and leachate from a worm farm are basically the same thing; just wormtea is aerated to encourage aerobic bacteria and kill the potentially harmful anaerobic bacteria. I'm lucky enough to have access to over 30 @hungrybin through my work and pretty much have a free rein. It's provided me with an incredible amount of castings and leachate/wormtea which I've used on my raised bed and planter bags. I've been mixing it with water at a ratio of about 1:5 and have been putting it on all of my plants for a couple on months. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, right? #imnotliableforyourinjuries #ifyoudieyoudie #wormcastings #worm #wormfarm #wormtea #liquidgold #blackgold #naturalfertilizer #gardening #permaculture #nature #natural #growyourownfood #growyourown #chemistry #soilscience

Piyasada genellikle "%100 organik solucan gübresidir." ibaresiyle satılan solucan gübreleri bulunmaktadır. Fakat organiklik uçtan uca bir süreçtir ve bu iddiada bulunabilmek için solucanların beslendiği büyükbaş hayvan gübresinden onunla karıştırılan gıda ürünlerine kadar her şey %100 organik olmalıdır. Limber Worms olarak bu süreçler konusunda mümkün olduğunca organik, temiz ve adil seçimler yapıyoruz. 🌱 #solucangübresi #vermicompost #wormcastings

African Night Crawlers get very long and much fatter than Red Wigglers. It takes less worms to eat more food scraps. At the right temperatures the process happens very quickly! Taught my friend Karine how to harvest worms from a DIY Rubbermaid Bin today! . . . #closedloop #vermiculture #zerodechets #lombricompost #vermicompost #africannightcrawlers #worms #redwigglers #indoorcomposting #sustainability #greenliving #zerowaste #foodwaste #wastereduction #climatechange #ecofriendly #gogreen #wormmanure #wormcastings

Unable to share all of the photos, but thanks to @theoffgridpear for a great worm post! #Repost @theoffgridpear with @get_repost ・・・ Worm farms 🐛 🍃 Dan (at Three Chimneys Aquaponics) taught us how to set one up, through doing. 😁 The existing worm baths are full of hard-working red wriggler worms that convert a bath-sized layer of organic matter (vegetable scraps and coffee grounds) into rich compost and worm wee which gets fed back into the system. (Pics 1 and 2). 🐛 To provide adequate drainage and sand for the worms digestion processes - the bottom of the bath is layered with stones, shade cloth and then sand and another layer of shade cloth. This is then topped with a layer of egg boxes to create habitats. 🐛Dry grass is then soaked in water and layered on top of the egg box layer to provide a desirable home area for the worms, worms need to be moist in order to breathe (through their skin.) 🌧 (Pic 3) 🐛 In order to transfer worms from the old baths into the new one (which is referred to as inoculating the new bath) - we piled up worms and their compost into pyramids in the sun outside, this encourages the worms to crawl towards the middle seeking darkness. After scraping off the outside layers of compost, one is eventually left with a handful of worm for the new bath! 🛀 (Pics 4 and 5). For effective inoculation- 5% of the new bath’s volume needs to be made up of worms. 🐛 The worms are then layered on top of the soaked grass (on the side furthest from the drainage), given some organic matter to munch on and left to settle in. 🏡 #worms #wormfarm #wormbath #redwrigglers #permaculture #systems #permacultureofsouthafrica #permaculturesouthafrica #theoffgridpear #theoffgridpeartour #experientiallearning #thanksDan #threechimneysaquaponics #aquaponics #wormcastings

💩 Re-sharing an old demonstration on how we make AACT (actively aerated compost tea). Whipping up a 3-bucket batch this weekend! 🌱 . What is AACT? It’s a natural, balanced, living "fertilizer" made by aerating compost (worm castings in this case) in water to extract beneficial organisms (e.g. bacteria, fungi, protozoa and nematodes) and nutrients. "Worm tea" is NOT the anaerobic liquid that leaches from too-wet worm bins. 🤭 While brewing AACT, the organisms are fed nutrients & air to rapidly increase their numbers and activity levels. When applied to the garden, plants go crazy for it! Plus, our beds are now LOADED with worms as some of the tiny ones end up in the brew and survive. They help continuously aerate and feed our soil. We do this every month or two 🐛 . Directions: 1) Harvest several cups of worm castings into a "tea bag": cheese cloth, a burlap sack, or other breathable material like these 1-gallon mesh paint strainer bags. If you don't have a worm bin, I highly suggest starting one! You can also buy worm castings at most garden supply stores. More info about worm bins under #deannacompost 👌 . 2) Steep in a 5-gallon bucket of dechlorinated water (rain or other fresh water, or let municipal tap water sit out in the sun for 1-2 days first to let chlorine dissipate). . 3) Introduce "food" for the microbes. We add a 1/3 cup organic molasses to each bucket, and sometimes a few ounces of seaweed extract or kelp meal. . 4) Using an aerator, bubble for 24-48 hours. We use an EcoPlus commercial air pump (793 gph) w/ 6 outlets (can brew up to 6 buckets at a time!) and 2 Bubblesnake aerators by TeaLAB @composttealab. Previously, we used a small basic aquarium pump and air stone, and it worked okay too! Just not as much oomph, or ability to make larger brews. . 5) After 24-48 hrs, remove the bag, squeeze excess liquid into the bucket. We spread the spent castings at the base of fruit trees/vines. Feed your plants right away! AACT doesn't have a shelf life, as it will quickly go anaerobic and die off once the air is turned off. We give each plant .5 - 2 cups (varies on size/age of plant), or use a watering can to spread evenly on a bed 🌿 #deannasgardentips

Today is #worldfoodday and many of you know I love to cook and I compost our food waste using worms. I cook to be able to provide healthy nutritious meals to my family with a goal of bringing us together at a table daily to bond while sharing our food. That said, I know how fortunate I am to be able to eat clean and healthy food without worrying about wether or not I can afford it or when my next meal may even come. I thought I would share some disappointing but real statistics about #foodwaste with the hope that next time you are ready to toss those leftovers or soogy leafy greens from your crisper bin I hope reading this, it encourages you to change your behavior and make a conscious effort to minimize your own waste and DO YOUR PART #beagoodhuman *1/3 of worldwide produced food is wasted with an annual value of $1 TRILLION and a weight of 1.3 BILLION Tons *All of the world’s hungry people could be fed on a QUARTER of the wasted food of the US, UK & Europe. Think about that.... *25% of the world’s water supply is used to grow food that is NEVER eaten !!?!?!! *Americans waste about a pound of food a day.... that equates to about $2200 a household. *815 MILLION people suffer from chronic hinger worldwide *Statistics show that giving women farmers additional resources could bring the number of hungry people in the world down by 100-150 million **Here are some simple tips to avoid food waste: -Plan meals -shop off a list to only buy what you need -freeze leftovers or use them towards another meal -do simple composting in a kitchen bin or with worms -instead of the garbage offer your leftovers to a family in need or a neighbor/friend maybe going thru a challenging time. -find a local farm that will gladly accept fruits and veggies for their livestock and horses Since moving to Colorado I have learned how to #pickle , #ferment , brew #kombucha I created a beautiful backyard garden that supplied us with food and constant greens. The opportunities are endless if you just go out and seek them. If you are curious, just learn, there is nothing to loose and EVERYTHING to gain #vermicompost #wormcastings #growyourfood #brewyourown #socialresponsibility

. This is THE reason I had growing challenges this year. The top pic is from last year, when I moved in. The ground was impenetrable and was covered with rocks and weeds and had been saturated with RoundUp.(Stockton's go-to for yard maintenance 🤦🏻‍♀️) . While I worked diligently to grow food, my priority was to begin to restore life to this little piece of Earth. . Throughout the year, Joshua (my neighbor) and I gathered as much organic material as we could from our yards. One compost pile quickly became two.....We did this for one year. You, my dear friends and followers, donated 4 yards of compost, 2 of which have been delivered. Two more yards will go into this space as soon as the hardscaping is complete. I'm hoping by the first week of November...🤞🏽 . Last winter, a different neighbor had some trees removed. At the end of the day, the landscapers dropped the chips in my garden! , All my kitchen scraps have been fed to my worms, and the few things they don't care for go into the compost heap. , You see, healthy soil is the key to growing healthy food. Just look at the difference.... in one year! I moved quite a bit of this beautiful humus out to the raised beds in the driveway. The seedlings are growing like crazy already. If I could just keep those damn green cabbage moth Catapillar's off of them, they be even bigger! (and, Maggie is still 🐈💩 on my 🌶🍃 every morning🤦🏻‍♀️) . Now, watch me grow! . Thanks for all your help!!🙏🏼❤️🙋🏻🎉✨🌱🌿💪🏽🌻 . #LivingSoil #Compost #WormCastings #Leaves #Sticks #RottenFood #lawn #Grass #Weeds #Earth #Humus #landscape #permaculture #ItsAlive #youshouldseeallthebugs #fungi #microbes #ChallengesAreNotLimits #TheDisabledCanGarden #before #after #beforenafter #life #inmygarden #grateful #donations #feedpeople #ihaveadream #equalaccesstofood #stockton

While waiting for the ladies to get there first day of light tomorrow, I got all caught up with wiping down and sweeping up my veg tent, putting all my clones in solo cups from my power-grow bucket and straightening up all my stations 😏 There’s ALWAYS something that needs to be done if you wanna maintain a clean garden or tents🤦🏼‍♂️ These here in this picture are the LifeSaver and Sour Strawberries I had left over, so I’m just going to veg them out a bit longer and take clones... Still have a week or two till I need this here space anyhow 👍🏻 #cuttingedgesolutions #greatwhitemyco #soilmixes #oceanforestsoil #happyfrogsoil #wormcastings #lifesaver #sourstrawberry #bogseeds #organic #pnw #washingtonstate #terps #terpsauce #hortilux #hps #mh #itallstartsfromseed
