The story:


This is a photograph of my first-ever vermicompost harvest! For fun I patted it into a "vermicastle" and even George-the-Cat was impressed! This was in November 2010, using a Worm Factory 360. This gardening season I squandered all the vemicompost I'd saved on my tomato plants, which grew in two 4' x 4' "square foot" gardens. Homemade vermicompost and water were the only ingredients I added to the garden and it was a spectacular harvest! Thanks to the worms I grew tomatoes galore, enough to share with friends, neighbours, and passerbys! I harvested more tomatoes than I weigh, and all from a tiny urban micro-garden in Zone 4, in Canada, using a Worm Factory 360 wormery! At work I tuck my spent tea-bags and apple-cores in an old plastic soap-dish to tote home to feed my worms! Whenever I'm caught "dissecting" a tea-bag by a colleague (removing the staples so the worms won't be scratched), I have an opportunity to talk about vermicomposting!
