"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…"

Vicky Myers commented on Marianne Barrowman's group Composting & Vermicomposting (worms)
"Idea just popped into my head. That would probably be an easier way to sift out my worms this year since I have more worms than compost right now. Do what you said scoop up a clump, dump in water then pour thru a sifter instead of just rubbing the…"

"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…"

"Well I got my worms on Tuesday and the little babies are settling just fine so I must had set in up right. I fed them 2 times already but not sure if I needed to. I am so stoked I got Honey Bees Thursday and the Worms on Tuesday I feel like a little…"

Sweet Whirligig Zinnia

"I liked the Wowie Zowie type last year & this spring I was disappointed when I couldn't find those in the nursery as they grew better & brighter for me than some from the past. So growing from my own is the way to go."

"Lorraine, how wonderful that you have a greenhouse. I would love to have one. You are right that zinnias are very easy to start from seed. I just wish I had the room inside (or a greenhouse!) to grow more things from seed. "
