It needs a little more work than I had originally planned for, but I did know it would cost me a few dollars. Nothing major, just a wire, mesh tarp lining the bottom, glued to each corner with wooden rods, easily reglueable if the worms eat the glue in place. Two rubber feet have snapped from being under pressure, and has left two gaping holes, plus the whole thing needs a wash, it's been outside under the back porch in the elements, since I dumped my first batch of worms in my garden bed, just after moving to our home. I will update with the pic later, then again when remodeled.

Got some lettuce(Romain, worms eat just as Gourmet as I do... sans meat) goin' in, waiting in the refrigerator is some radishes, and other various items. And plus, I have some coffee grounds and egg shells(again).
But first, I'm gonna try something(wrote this, now back to work)... UPDATE: what had happened was, I went diggin' for some worms(a lot), along with some castings, and placed them in a bowl. Then, I made a nice sized well on the opposite side to the last feeding, and instead of just dumping the meal in, I spread it evenly over the not so perfectly flat surface, and placed the bowl load back into the bin. I did this, in all honesty to get worms feeding from the top and the bottom, meeting in the middle, and, come next feed, I may have to refurbish my first bin. This shit(no pun intended), is multiplying at an alarming rate, quicker than I could have imagined, it's all good though, I may have to outsource to my father in law, if he'll allow me the opportunity, to make a predetermined set of sales via his website http://www.bigdaddieorganics.com, unless, I can hold off until the Change I spoke of in my last post, happens, and I get sales set up here. We'll see as time goes by... BBS.

Inside the next four and a half months(I will be due some vacation pay), I am planning the purchase of a few items to start selling. My cousin, Jeremy, forced me into this option, lol, by making me open up my mind. People will soon be driving by, going to little league games and practices, the everyday trips to Leo's, the community liquor store just down the road, the laundry, hell, I plan to divert their attention on their way to Giovannis'.
Last summer, just a few short months residing in our newly purchased(well, acquired) home, I did a lot of cooking on the back porch. I, never hindered by the weather, will use my grill in the dead of winter, so, my grill gets a lot of use. The porch, is mainly for family meals, when I recieve said extra funds, I pull my grill to the front yard, and invite all passers-by, the opppurtunity to stop. Jay Downs, your free pulled pork sandwich is top priority, just bring more people and some extra cash.

I never really liked fried eggs, as a child growing up, I was the scrambled kind of kid. I've always attested my love of food to the mature state of my tastebuds. On the side of the sandwhich that housed the egg, I slathered on a thin coat of mayo and some hot sauce, the other side featured a poppy seed dressing. If I could describe the first bite in one word, it would have to be supersensationalOOOHWHEEEEfantastic.
What the food situation looks like. It's been a few days since I last fed, the batch I already had. About to go and dig at dirt, and check for meal previously placed, all at the same time looking for a major concentration of worms. Off to snap pics, and gather further info, to be dictated at a later time.

Then, you know I'm making changes. The biggest is, my wife, Stephanie, and I have returned to School. Not for no other reason, but to obtain a degree, and if all else fails with the actuall plans, I'll have something that I can return to. I didn't get the financial windfall I had expected at tax time, therefore, nothing exciting is gettin' ready to pop-off. I can't put an end to the debt that is bogging me down. It's got me thinking tho, I'm about to try and raise the money.

The highlight of tonights meal, which consist of pork chops, and brussel sprouts, some are eating spinach, is the bite I took from this piece of pork fat(no not for everybody). With the myriad of flavors, the 2 that stand out, are the bacon grease and anotto seed.

It's time to feed the worms, this is how I obtain their feed. This feeding consist of 3 and 4 day old potato peels, and some rotting lettuce(iceburg). I choose to process the food to a pure'e(not actuall spelling), not because the worms can not devour the content, but, to speed up the process.
