Worm Farm Overload!

I recently inherited an established worm farm. In my enthusiasm, I have overloaded it with too much stuff for the poor worms to eat. Today, with a little help, I added a new level and split the rotting vegetation over 2 layers. Worms were put on each level. I added some lime, for good measure, then added some newspaper which was dampened down with a spritzer.

Aechmea "Inca Gold"

Has got a flower and ends have turned hot pink!

This is the Colocasia that I rescued from between 2 buildings. The first leaf has been out for a while and there is evidence of another forming. I have just transplanted it into a bigger pot. I glazed the pot prior to transplanting with Potseal to help keep some moisture from leaking out when the weather heats up


I have been concerned that as the weather warms up, my plants are going to fry in the heat. My first attemp at mulching is white gravel in the top of this cement pot. I think it looks pretty great!
