Ok, fair enough, to some the title might have been inappropriate, but since I spend so much time making sure to cultivate the freedom of my mind in a completely unhindered way, anyone who might be offended would just have to forgive me, besides, it's just a quote from one of the greatest movies/books of all time, Jurassic Park (have I ever mentioned that this was one of our first warnings about the danger of GMO's, Cloning, and in general tampering with nature).
Anyhow, Paul brought the next two bins for "The Wyrm" on Saturday, I was very glad to get those in and set up and ready to go in the next month, but I was getting concerned about obtaining feed stocks for the worms that would also make terrific fertilizer, fortunately the neighbors arrived right behind Paul with a dump truck full of cow manure! Paul and I went over and helped finish cleaning out the barn for about an hour which resulted in a second dump truck load of manure. It's now laid out in a windrow where it will compost for about a month before being fed (in any large quantity) to the worm heard. I'll also be adding more green compostable material to the heap to help fortify the nutrients and keep it limed pretty well to balance the pH.
I was going to try to find that particular still from Jurassic Park and spoof the pic with myself but I couldn't find it anywhere, so instead Paul and I took some picks, I made the comment that we should make the pics look like they aren't conceited (my mind works in mysterious ways) so we grabbed a pitch fork and threw some manure around, as it turned out, those probably looked goofier than just standing there with a big grin on our face, I thought I'd post them anyhow. I sent Paul home with three big soy bean seed bags full of manure for his herd as well.
