    Worm casting rule!!!:cool2:
    There is nothing better to improve the health of the soil and plants. If your compost pile is on the ground, the worms will come. Build a worm bin & use the castings in your tea.
    Or better yet, we'll ship you a ton of nice finished worm castings. :waving:

    Worm castings are good stuff! I just bought a pound of red worms to give it a try. I also use the castings in tea.

    I think I remember Dr Ingham saying that worm castings are the best and safest way for a begin-er to make good tea.

    we use 400lbs per day just in tea that's the real deal,we can say with great conviction that the worm cast is the base of our organic programs

    Darwin said that worms are the intestines of the earth.

    there are many great minds that date back as far as 4000years BP, who have embraced the need for worms in PLANT HEALTH

    I always thought it was Aristotle who said that.
