Home-Vermicomposting under the tree – May 16, 2008

This was my post last May 16, 2008. I am re posting this for a series of vermicomposting articles.

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.
