Trench worm compost gardening: Tips and tricks from Mama's Worm Composting.
Just wanted to provide a quick update, and possibly the last update, about our lovely worm composting trench garden. I visited the garden a week or two ago and took the pictures above. Notice how HUGE that leaf is in comparison to my foot (it's a mustard leaf). Those mustard plants alone make me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. :-)
Sadly, over the winter break while Saaba was away her kitchen burned down. Seriously. Since my friends who are lending their garden space are renters, this means they'll be moving sooner than later (they're still on holiday). And bye bye worm composting garden. Well, I can say that I had a great experience digging my hands in the dirt (for a change... instead of poop...) and actually growing something instead of killing it! Now I just need another friend in my neighborhood to pilfer land from!
The worms continue to make their way throughout the garden, though they are also starting to breed right in the trench. They are all through both the worm composting trench and the rest of the garden. I'm happy to say I'll have a lovely harvest of red boys when I dig out the trench in a couple of weeks, and more than enough will be leftover in this garden to continue enriching the soil all around the yard.
Stay tuned for pictures of our final worm composting garden harvest in coming weeks. The cauliflower, artichokes and broccoli will have to wait and be made a housewarming gift to the new tenants when the house is fixed. But I'll show off pics of mustard, kale, lettuces, beets, potatoes, chard, and a bunch of other random vegetables that I can't remember when we cut them all in one fell swoop.
