Thanks From Local Senior Residence

8 Apr

We were so pleased with the donation recently from TexasJumpers. We live in a Senior Residence where several people have started a Community Garden. When I asked them if they could use  the best compost in the world, they looked forward to it eagerly . Now after just a week, they are seeing the difference. Thank you Kyle!

You are welcome!  We are happy to help.

Need a Christmas gift for the gardener in your life? I just harvested several hundred pounds of casting this weekend just in time for Christmas.  A 10 lb bag at $20 can do a world of good for your winter garden or your potted plants.  You can also brew a nearly unlimited supply of actively aerated compost tea.

African Nightcrawlers are back

I don’t have alot of personal experience with these beauties, but what I do know is they are big eaters.  If you can keep your worms out of the cold in the winter and want to produce castings, this may be the species for you.

Bring your soil back to life with worm castings

15 Mar

Spring is here and it is time to plant in Texas.  Worm castings are rich in P,N,K but the most valuable component are the beneficial microbes that will add life to soil and plants. We have a ton of worm castings at our two Texas farms.  You can pick up a 10 lb bag for $20.  Add a handful of castings to seedlings or brew up your own compost tea to really get the most out of  just a few lbs of worm castings.  You will be surprised just how far a small amount worm castings can go.

Here’s a video from a few years back where we brewed up 500 gallons with a combination of worm castings and compost.

Beat back Chinch bugs with Worm Tea

9 Jul

A few weeks ago I had noticed a few brown patches from my neighbors yards creeping close to mine.  Within a few days affected areas were well into my grass.  Upon further inspection of the pattern and damage it appeared to be the dreaded chinch bug.  The little critters love dry conditions and love to eat away at the healthy roots of grass.  I quickly brewed up some worm tea and made a liberal application to my yard.  Within a couple of days, my neighbor and I noticed a difference and are happy to see the grass is on it’s way to recovering.

Worm tea is an all natural inexpensive way to beat back garden and lawn pests, and has saved me loads of money and headaches.  The beneficial micro organisms in your actively aerated tea will add life back to the soil and are predacious to many pests attacking lawns and vegetables.
