You know those days when a strange cow wanders into your garden? Yesterday was like that. Today this vermiculture kitchen disposal bin was discovered to be anerobic due to the drain holes becoming clogged. There were still a few live worms so today was the perfect day to turn them into free range worms. The main burial spot was formerly a pathway. The secondary spot was a cow hoof print hole near a blueberry bush. Cheap animal labor. This gooey mess is the remnants of an estimated 50 gallons of kitchen scraps. About a dozen large pumpkin hulls, chicken bones, egg shells, coffee, cabbage cores, stale bread, bananas, nut hulls, & a little paper & leaves for worm bedding, etc. Not much was still recognizable except some pumpkin seeds, egg shells, & last night's chicken bones.
NOT the first time stray cows have visited. Wondering if the finders keepers rule applies to unmarked cattle.
Circles mark the spots.
Note the scraggly old dogwood tree starting to bloom. A bat house too.
Will start planting corn & beans in this garden soon!!!
Argue for your limitations and they are yours forever.
I finally got enough scraps to do this one. I did a small 3 gallon bucket at Wheaton Labs during the PEP1 event and then two 5 gallon buckets at my property. They weren't full but together I think they met or exceeded 10 gallons.
