I’ve Started Farming

I’ve Started Farming

Farming? Well, worm farming. Finally, after months of having the worm farm paraphernalia sitting around with no worms in it, I am happy to announce that a very healthy bunch of Tiger, Red and Indian blue worms have taken up residence.

The process was really pretty easy. I think the reason I hadn’t gotten around to actually getting the worms was that I was really nervous about how I might just not be very good at it.

I was in the garden shop getting some winter veggie seedlings and when I got up to the counter I noticed that the people in front had purchased a worm farm. I asked if they knew where to get the actual worms and, lo and behold, they were right there in the shop. Hadn’t seen them before, but then I don’t think they come in very often. Maybe the worms prefer the more up-market garden centres that have cafes and gift stores attached?

Off down the aisles I went in search of the worms, determination on my face and in my stride. Found them, rushed back to the checkout and into the car before I could change my mind.

The worms have their own website, so tap, tap, tap on the keys and up came a really great site with great information and brilliant videos that showed just how easy it was.  WormsRus

Got the worms settled in and this morning when I went to check. It’s like have a new baby, but I’m pleased to report that they were all there wriggling and squirming and doing what worms love to do – starting the composting procedure.

This is going to be fun!  Oh, and the winter veggies got planted to.

What to Blog About?

I’ve been a bit slack lately not keeping up with this blog. I hope it’s not just me, but do others have problems thinking of things to write about?

So I started to go down the rabbit hole trying to find something that inspired me. I mean, let’s face it, the blog has to be interesting or with one wave of the index finger on the mouse…you’re gone…………

you are still there, aren’t you???

Then, there it was!!! A video about a little doggie who was rescued.  It’s a simple little story, but so wonderful.  It was the first time in ages that I had tears and smiles all at the same time.

I’m keeping the words I write to a minimum because I just want you to treat yourself and have a watch…..

The Beautiful Bumble Bee.

The Beautiful Bumble Bee.

A very long time ago when I was 11 years of age I got my first pair of glasses.  I was reminded about it recently so thought I’d tell you a wee story. (Don’t panic – it’s short).

I can remember vividly that day. The glasses arrived in the afternoon and immediately my mother told me to put them on. “Oh, mum, you’ve got wrinkles!” I exclaimed.
Her response… “Take them off!!!”

I saw a lot of “firsts” that day – my sister’s freckles, my brother’s burgeoning lip fuzz, the veins on a leaf and the individual petals on the daisy flowers on the lawn – in fact, I even saw the blades of grass.  But the thing that fascinated me the most – was the bumblebee.  I had never seen the wings before.  Oh, I knew instinctively that it must have had wings because it flew, but I’d never seen the wings – never seen how small they were.
From then on the bumblebee became my hero – we shared the same attitude – not supposed to be able to fly….but just watch me! To the point that I stylized the bumblebee as my personal logo and take him with me to remind me that anything is possible (yes, that means I have a discreetly placed tattoo).
Although I must add here, that science has busted the myth about not being able to fly. They are perfectly engineered to fly as, of course, they would be. But at the time, I thought it was a wonderful concept to follow.

What prompted me to write this? An article I read the other day that pesticides are killing honeybee populations worldwide.  I have no doubt that it will be affecting my darling bumblebee as well.

If bees on organic farms are not affected…..doesn’t that say something about what the world is doing with the chemicals that are routinely used on farms and in garden centres? The bees in these areas are in a much more vulnerable state.

The world cannot lose the bee – honey or bumble!
