I harvested about a quarter of my composting redworm Rubbermaid Bin of worm poo. It was such fun digging it out. It was the consistency of rich moist fudge brownies, quite moist and perfect for my uses. The harvest yielded about 4.5 gallons / 17 liters. I immediately got a batch of activated worm poo tea brewing. The morning glory container plants will receive it tomorrow woohoo!

Nectar of the gods!! That's why your plants are so healthy Thumbs up
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Plants do thrive with biologically active growing medium.

I gave this product to each pot, to feed the soil microbes and to bump up the phosphorus level a little to encourage a tsunami of flowers.

It also contains beneficial soil microbes if you do not want to deal with worms.

I got another 5 gallons of worm castings harvested on Sunday. The worm poop will sit in the bucket until spring when I will use it in the garden.
