I've been putting off some of my planting until the manure arrived and I'm glad I waited. It's rich, dark, crumbly and chock full of worms!! Sooooo exciting! When I say 'chock full', I mean tens of thousands of lovely little wrigglers.. The whole family was like kids in a candy shop. The family fishermen, were running for their rods (not with MY worms!!) and the youngest added handfuls to our new 'worm farm', which has taken up residence in a big plastic container in our garage.. well filled with partially aged compost, veggie peelings and handfuls of shredded leaves.
|Worms, glorious worms!! Dozens in every shovelful!|
I also finally picked the last of the winter carrots this weekend - we got about 40 roots, each 5 to 6-inches long, super sweet and very crisp. Yum!

Hope your weekend was manure and seed filled too! Worms, glorious worms!!
