Slow Progress

Current berry plant count: 4
Total berries harvested: 0
CLOSE UP of my best berry plant so far!

Berry growing, like worms, requires patience.

I have to feed the worms tonight and the bin is almost ready for another cranking. Unfortunately, as I have been moving slower than a worm's pace, I am barely done screening and doing something constructive with the first batch.

In direct contrast, my new job is going great. People gamble a ridiculous amount of money, and I get to work on reports, planning, and promotions to convince them spend even more. All that work and concentration makes me want to come home, walk my dog, and do some yoga or take a run.

See what's missing from that list? You got it- worms.

HOWEVER, now that the new facility has opened and things are dying down a little, I have been less busy and the wheels in mind have been turning back to the squirmers.

Onward and upward!

Hi Lilli
I stayed up too late last night reading your blog. Obviously I loved it cause it's the am and I'm sitting in front of the computer having another cuppa instead of going outside to my flowers. I also have a herd which I keep in my greenhouse raise bed. I've been thinking of transferring them to a worm wigwam. The WW is pretty expensive I don't know weather I should invest the money or not. I have lots of worms and it takes lots of time to separate them. Do you think the money is worth the time saved?
I couldn't get on your website. Is it up and running?

Lilliworm.com is good to go- not sure why you couldn't access it?
I love the wigwam- it was expensive, but is virtually maintenance free and a huge time-saver once you get going. Plus, it can hold so much more "food"/scraps.
