What are you most proud of? The worm tubes and the amazing boxes that my gang made me.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and plan out every bed so that you know what to plant and where.

What kind of wood did you use? What would you do different, and what are you really happy with?

The wood is oak, reclaimed from a job site my husband was on. I not sure that I would do anything different. I love the height of the beds! Thanks for asking

I have a friend that has some room to do what you did with the cinder bricks. He has problems with both his back and legs (getting up and down). Will recommend he give this a try for his gardening...he doesn't read very well and doesn't DO the computers, so between his grown children and myself, maybe we can help him out with the ideas and info. from all the great people with great ideas...thanks!

What are the large PVC pipes for? What all did you plant in your beds?

06/02/2011 Flag

I have planted the 3 sister planting (corn, beans and squash. The pvc is for the red wiggler worms and the waste from my kitchen along with paper. Pretty cool!

I also planted tomatoes and peppers with marigolds in one of the boxes. Green onions, beets, radish and sweet peas in another. The rest I will be planting tomorrow.

The tubes are for the worms that I use as my compost, the worms eat and than leave their waste behind as the best organic matter. I planted cucs, zucchini, corn beans peas lettuce spinach tomatoes broccoli cauliflower brussel sprouts peppers herbs lemon tree that I had to bring in the house and its not doing so hot.

I want to know more about the red worm pvcs. Are there holes drilled in the bottom/sides? Do you just dump the food waste and paper in as you use it? Why is it in the bed?

12/20/2011 Flag

The wholes are drilled up the tube 1/3 of the way up and all the way around the tube. The tubes are in the bed because I put scraps from my kitchen (veggie and fruits) in the tube and the worms come and eat and then they leave their waste in the beds. This is great for organic matter. Hope that answers your questions! Thanks for asking.
