There they are... all happily wriggling and thriving on our vegetable and fruit scraps. Hubby has been doing some research and is planning to make some tweaks to their polystyrene box so we can harvest the worm tea (some kind of powderful fertilizer liquid produced by the worms which is so potent, it needs to be diluted with nine parts water before pouring on the plants).
Other updates on our garden activity:
We recently planted the 'pencil plants'... they'll soon grow taller to add an elegant touch (and as mum puts it, add some grace) to our home.
The bushy plants we took from Uncle Yu Chang's house have not died and are starting to flower. Live plants = Good.
The chilli plant we took from Aunty Alicia's garden, still green. And I believe it also holds true that Green = Good!
However the growth of the capsicum seed planted by mum has been a little stunted. It hasn't grown much larger than this size over the past few weeks, so I'm getting a little worried. Maybe it needs a good dose of worm tea.
We also planted some spring onions... I was just chopping some spring onions the other day and when I came to the root part, instead of tossing it into the worm food scrap box, I remarked to hubby that we should try planting them and see what happens. So he did! And this is the result so far...
Hubby has also started planning the layout of our vege patch.
Soon we can start the fun part of planning what to plant in which patch!
