today, in my garden: spreading some worm poop

This morning, I feel the change in the air and take in a deep breath, with thoughts of summer days and beautiful harvests. Not just garden harvests, but summer-day harvests of love, laughter, stories, and open spaces.

Wandering around my garden early this morning, I witness the exhaustion of my soil. I fill my bucket with worm castings and walk around spreading the rich manure, giving new life to tired soil.

As worms digest material, they refine it into this dark rich (not smelly) manure called worm castings.  When applied to your soil, these castings, or worm excrement, add humic acid, beneficial microbes and bacteria to the soil. They also increase absorbency, remove toxins, encourage drainage, while improving the overall structure.

Best yet, worm castings can be added to any plant in your garden, they all love it! Sprinkle worm castings on top or work it into the soil, then add water. Simple as that….so now go spread some poop.
