Ah, the smell! If you have ever had the chance to get a whiff of worm output, then you are aware of the experience. I wish it were communicable here. We are fortunate to have a worm farmer in our midst and to share a garden with him. He feeds the worms just veggies and every couple of weeks lets their product loose into a bucket. From there, he dilutes it with water and pours. It’s a fantastic fertilizer that really taps the natural cycle of things.
When we poured this wonder juice into the garden, we had a huge boom of plants shortly after. We planted peas but got late Zuchinnis! There must have been seeds in the worm output. We removed most of these volunteers, but let one grow to see what would happen. It only had 6 inches of soil, but the plant grew to be enormous! Sadly, it was too cold and too late in the season for it to fruit.
If you are looking for a great way to fertilize your garden, worms are a natural way to go. Plants love worm output! However, don’t plan on keeping a worm bin in your living space. Trust us on that one.
