"I have one in back, planted it 13 years ago, and one in front planted about 4 years ago.  I love them both.  Jury is out though on the delicate, lacy ones that seem to get quite burned in this area."

"I so need to get some worms going now that I'm on the farm. I love my big green compost bin so much I got an other one at a yard sale last year think I had to pay $20 and they lost the little door at the bottom. Now I just need to find enough…"

"I love my big green compost bin it was a good score from an elderly lady I used to work for. I came with her place when she moved down the hill. I hear that the people who used to live there were great gardeners. She was too old and sick to get out…"

"I've been using a screen that fits my wheelbarrow for years but I hate cutting worms up. I can't believe how many worms I have in that compost bin this year. Guess I can give that a try if I remember to take a pile out when I'm out…"

Bob (Z9B Florida) commented on Marianne Barrowman's group Composting & Vermicomposting (worms)
"Vicky .. easiest way I've found is the standard method of making several small piles of the compost and worm out in the sun and every 5 minutes or so, take compost off the top of the pile as the worms go down into the pile.  Works very…"

"Rick .. if it's muddy, that's normal for me too as I feed them lots of water content scraps like lettuce, etc.  The best way I've found to use the stuff is to take two big handfulls and put it into a 5 gallon bucket and still it…"

Peonies Along Rock Wall

"Norma, once the peony blooms have faded, we cut them off and then leave the plants alone until early fall. At that time, we cut them down to the ground to prevent any diseases from overwintering."
