Guilford Duck Race…

Posted on 30th September 2012 in Uncategorized

DJ Cousin Ron, Melissa, two of her kids, Dana and I had a blast at the Guilford Duck Race today. The Guilford Fund For Education (GFFE) sold approximately 2900 raffle tickets, at five bucks a pop, to the few hundred folks that turned out for the GFFE’s rubber duck race. Of course The Duck Truck was invited! We brought our books and fliers about composting and worms. We brought our worm puzzle. We brought our worm bin. So, yeah, we got down and dirty! And a good time was had by all!

100 pounds of compost can hold up to 195 pounds of water! C’mon rain! Don’t expect any compost deliveries today. I refuse to break my back dragging that stuff out of the Duck Truck!

Winter Rye

Posted on 25th September 2012 in Uncategorized

Helllllloooooooooooooooooooooooo Fall! It’s time to work on next year’s garden bed already! As you pull up this year’s plants, throw down a cover crop (winter rye) to keep the soil in place over winter. Run it over with the lawn mower near the end of October, so seed heads don’t form. Then in March and April, it’ll grow some. Then you can cut it again and till it in to feed the soil!
