”Start small. Do what you can. Make a difference."
What would happen if you skip the Miracle Gro for the tomatoes, flowers, etc. and ordered your very own organic fertilizer maker? What you say? What on earth is that?
What if I told you the benefits are two-fold since you will use your kitchen scraps to make the fertilizer?The technical permaculture hippee term is vermicomposting.

By definition: (thank you wikipedia)Vermicomposting is the process of using worms and micro-organisms to turn kitchen waste into a black, earthy-smelling, nutrient-rich humus.Since I constructed a DIY heap of trash complete with optional chicken scratching accessories, I did not go the Amazon.com “you can buy anything on earth and we’ll deliver to your door” route. But for any of you interested in sharing in hippieness, Amazon has made it easy for anyone. They have several DIY worm composting kits, and I must say they are highly rated and look easy to use.

For those of you in more of a hurry, the same people offer the worm castings already all ready to use: Another disclaimer: If you enjoy my ramblings and happen to buy anything off Amazon from the links in this website, Amazon sends a few pennies my way used to support this site and keep it up and running.If anyone does run out and order a worm composter, I’d love to hear about it and your worm farming adventures.Cheers!
