I've got flowers blooming all over my garden. And that makes me a happy lady! And, I've got fennel, radishes, carrots, lettuce, Swiss chard, and leeks growing in my veggie garden - more veggies than ever. If I could just keep the squirrels out of my radish and carrot patch, then everything would be rolling along beautifully. Swiss chard, leeks, and lettuce.
Saturday morning I finally loaded up the Envirocycle with almost-finished compost. It took me about two hours to unload the wire bin, dig some of the good stuff from the bottom of the bin, load the tumbler, then reload all the compost back into the wire bin.
I moved all this stuff out of the compost bin with my pitchfork.
And then found some good-looking stuff at the bottom of the pile.
And this big worm, too!
I added approximately 1/4 cup of the Organic Traditions Bio-Excelerator to the compost in the tumbler. So far I've been rotating it about 4 or 5 turns every day. I'm almost certain I won't be able to keep that up. I know I'm going to slip up a few days and forget to do it. I'll keep you posted on how long it takes to get usable compost from it. Hopefully I'll have some in a few weeks because tomato season is just around the corner.
A few tulips popped open this week in my semi-circle bed. These are some freebie Rembrandt tulips I got last year with an online order. I've never been much of a tulip lover, but the colors in my semi-circle bed this year just might change my mind. Wouldn't it be gorgeous if I had about 10 more red tulips blooming? Maybe next year!
