Thanks to some rain and a little TLC, our beds are back to the point of being able to yield good supplies of “Compost Ecosystem” (aka “Eco-Mix”). Again, this is Red Worm inoculum mix that simply contains fewer worms than our “Red Worm Culture”. It’s still great for starting a vermicomposting system (as long as you go easy on the feeding for the first little while), and it’s also a fair bit cheaper!
In all honesty, given the amount of rainfall (or lack thereof) we are likely to see this month, there’s a decent chance that we won’t have Red Worm Culture bags available until September, but I don’t foresee any more shortages of the Eco-Mix prior to the end of the season.
We also still have plenty of worm castings – still available at our ultra-low price! I’ve been seeing fantastic results with my crop plants (mostly tomatoes & squash this year) – so if you want to provide your veggies with a nice late season boost, this is definitely a great option! I’m planning to add a blog post with photos of the garden a bit later this week, so stay tuned!
