The day has finally arrived! The worms are here! The mail person tried to deliver them yesterday, but we knew we wouldn't be home and put a note on the mail box. The mail person left a note indicating which post office they'd be kept at until we picked them up.
Here are some other photos I've taken this week of what's growing on in the house and outside:
the last attempt failed from too much heat outside. I was inspired to try something new with them because a friend from college who works at an organic farm on Maui posted a photo of really beautiful, huge green onions.
My old housemates would probably find this pretty funny because this desk sat in their backyard for a few months after I moved out. Goodwill wouldn't take it, so I was waiting until I could take it to the dump. Once we finally picked it up in Green Guy's car and drove it to the dump, we found out that the dump had already closed that day. Frustration turned into creativity, and we realized we could repurpose it! The worm bin lives right next to it in the sideyard.
Thanks for reading, and happy Friday!
