Worms and Grow Lights

Posted on

Since Chef’s parents’ house burned, Chef’s been taking care of his dad’s worm farm.  This is a box where you grow worms and use the castings (otherwise known as worm poop) as fertilizer for your plants.

Chef has to feed the worms every now and then.  He just takes the lid off the box and puts in some food scraps for the little wormies to eat.

The combination of the worm castings and the grow lights he has means that seedlings grow quickly.  This photo was taken only two days after Chef planted seeds.  You can already see the herbs and greens popping up.


About Karen Koch

I like the old-fashioned lifestyle. All this new-fangled stuff baffles me sometimes. I cherish living out in the country, raising chickens and rabbits, planting fruit trees, and enjoying a slow life filled with beautiful words and ideas. I don't always achieve a slow life. I teach middle school English and manage a little burgeoning farm with my husband, and somewhere in the midst of that, I try to find time for writing, running, knitting, reading, and playing the ukulele. And sometimes, I actually succeed.
