Vermicomposting under the tree

The garden beside our house is now very much shaded by coconut trees and two mango trees. I can’t grow anything there now except some manaw and some orchids. Hubby even bought some sunshine chickens (sasso breed) to raise there. More the reason not to grow anything there anymore. Anyway, the african nightcrawlers earthworms’ are still alive under the mango trees. The chickens love them.

I planted some tomato and mustard maybe next week I’d be able to transfer the seedlings to individual pots for growing. Likewise, next week, or over the weekend, I will harvest vermicompost and give the worms new food.

I’ve started a new garden on the property fronting our house. The owner allowed me to plant veggies there while they are still not building a house.

  1. I ran across your blog because of the Sunshines🙂

    Where did your hubby get them? If he wants to learn more about raising them, we will be in Cebu next month for the Cebu Food Expo at Waterfront Cebu.

  2. He got them from Hector of St. Mary’s. I understand my husband has called you on the phone and was able to talk to you again at the Mactan Intl. Airport, the last time you were here in Cebu.

    The sunshines were acquired just for family consumption, but he is planning to raise them commercially later on.

    Yes. We’ll be there at the expo next month.

  3. See you there next month🙂
