Street Library

Ian Kirk who started the Little Library on Macleay Island alerted me to an online news bulletin of our little street libraries.  I think mine is the 6th one to be opened that they mention. Check out the news article in the Redlands City Bulletin

Just Wondering

So I came across this meme and thought I'd check it out and participate. In Queensland we've gone into a hard 3 day lockdown because a traveller brought back the UK variant of covid which is 70% more transmittable and is airborne.

So of course I am online more and looking at all the links I haven't had time to read today. This one took my fancy.

Just Wondering

1.   When was the last time you tried something new?: I am always trying something new. 

Last weekend we bought a new design professional worm farm from what we currently have, you can see it HERE. I like the new design and a week on so far it is working well.I put in about 4 inches of coir and the worms have just processed them in a week and made worm castings.

2.   Who in your family do you compare yourself to?

No one really, I'm very unique LOL

3.   What lesson in life did you learn the hard way?

I had to grow myself as I was told so everything I did good or bad I learnt the hard way:

4.   What can you do today that you weren't able to do before?

I am learning very slowly how to be a good gardener.

So hop on over to to Tuesdays Place to see what others are wondering and play along if. you so wish

Gardening Jan 2021

On the weekend I installed a new worm farm from Bunnings  cost about $84 which we expected but has been manufactured properly. I am excited to see this but it will take about 3 months for the worms to eat through the coconut coir I put in as their bedding which they eat.

My worms are spoilt, on the weekend i crushed up beetroot, carrot for them, as they don't have teeth it takes them time to eat so if its crushed up its easier for them to eat

crushed egg shells they love as well, I also put this in my garden to prevent pests

My new worm farm that I am excited about as its manufactured properly

I separated worms from worm casting as well, ready to add to my garden beds and pot plants

The left one is my first worm farm, its huge. 2nd one on a stand is smaller and was the most successful until I did something and it doesnt produce worm wee lately. 
The newest one is on the right.

I have since learnt that you flush 5 litres of water every week to flush out the worms and make wee, who knew that hahaha. so I have instant 5 litres of worm wee just like that. I read that the worms don't drown when you do that because the water drains away quickly - thank goodness for that
