House Closing on November 4th

Well, I finally have a closing date. It's probably going to be too late to put in any type of a garden. I am however currently exploring the possibility of raising a half a dozen chickens.

The Worms Are In!!

The worms arrived today!  They were a bit chilly.  Its been in the 50s but who knows how cold it was when they got put on the truck.

Here are a few picks:

Well, there isn't much to update! I still haven't closed but it is moving closer. Waiting on the grant money, no idea how long that will take!

I did start a worm bin today following Bentley's method over at Red Worm Composting.  I'll post pics later when its done.  I need to get more vegetable scraps and such at work tomorrow to finish it up!

The surprising thing was how much cardboard this thing uses!  My hands got sore just tearing cardboard!

I put some cherry tomatoes (both green and overripe), along with the stems and leaves from the tomato plant, then a few maple leaves, a little bit of tissues, a bunch of strawberry leaves and runners, and one banana peel.

Once its finished, it sits for 1-2 weeks to cure, then the worms go in.  So sometime in the next week or so I'll order a pound of worms.

I guess that's it on the Homestead front.
