...in reality I read a few pages every day, so you'll have to wait a bit for my Big and Learned Post on the subject. Untill then I can say that it's interesting to read about something in quite another size than my own fiddlings.
Today I fed the worms. That was something that took me a looooooong time to do. I was expecting odour, but when I finally came around to do it I did it so fast that the smell couldn't keep up. Self-preservation is a good thing.
Before I emptied the can of food into the compost I poured out the worm fluid. About three deciliter (more than a cup) of prime black water to feed to the plants. When I watched the level rise in the bottle I realised that I've reach a milestone, one of those I've waited for
I'm now selfsuficiant in fertiliser
The vermicomposts did the trick. When I came around setting them up the rest was a matter of weeks. Still I think a celebratory woho is in place. Wohoo!
So, this is what's left on the list
- Sterilise soil
- Mix new potting soil (jay for home made worm fertiliser!)
- Repot seedlings
- Buy sills, consoles, lamps, chains and flourescent lights
- Paint sills
- Put up sills and added light
- Move the mound of pallets under the window in the study
- Put the potted plants in their new places
- Order seeds
Will I keep the pace? Let's see...
