So, you’ve been using your WormCycle castings all summer and now the harvest is coming in. Tomatoes, red and meaty, Zucchini’s as long as your arm, and Zinnias up to your knees. Well, now what. The season is rapidly closing and you have some worm castings left over. What should you do with them? Well, there is one planting period left. As the cooler weather looms, consider some late season vegetables, and Mums. Now is the time for decorating your house with the colors of fall. If you live on the western side of Detroit, Willow Greenhouse is a great place to start. They’ve been very kind to WormCycle and have been selling A LOT of castings. For those of you who are interested, we will be setting up an end of season sale of our worm castings. When it’s time to clean our your beds, that is an ideal time to add WormCycle to your soils in preparation for next springs plantings. So, stay tuned. I’ll be back here in a few days with sale information and some ideas on how to prep your soils for the winter.
I come across all sorts a material these days about how fixing our soils will solve a whole host of problems. The issue for me is how to distill this stuff down into something that is easy to understand and doesn’t take 4 hours to read or watch. For me personally I’m finding the Micro vs Macro view point fascinating. We look through microscopes to solve global issues. Here’s a guy who puts it all together rather nicely. While he is talking about a scale that most of us will never see, the principle applies to us all. We can do this in our back gardens, our raised vegetable beds, and our front lawns. Enjoy the cycle.
