Yes, that time of year has arrived for me. It is always exciting to finally be able to dig around in the worm bin after a long winter and see how things are going.
The temperatures are still cool enough that you can mix things up and really make the worms happy.
Orders are coming in and that makes me happy.
This is also a time when I can start taking material out of the bin for seed starting, soil amendment and mixing organic fertilizers.
Tomatoes love castings so using the worm product to get your tomatoes started and each time you transplant is going to get your tomato plants off to a terrific start.
If you start your own tomatoes from seed, or if you buy starts from someone else one of the most important things to remember is to not allow them to become root bound. A tomato plant that has become root bound will almost never perform up to optimum standards. Also, if you smoke or have friends/family who smoke 'DON'T TOUCH THE TOMATO PLANTS.' Always wash your hands really well before handling the tomato plants.
Well, just thought I ought to check in. Life's busy right now, for all of us I'm sure.
Til later, happy gardening, or worming, or just be happy.
