WORM COMPOSTER

I have decided to get a worm composter,  hope to get it in the summer.  Composting outside is not something one can do on a farm.  A farm can be rat heaven.  Especially when you have chickens.  Half of their food is thrown here and there with their scratching.

I took a class on worm farming at my local food co-op a few years ago  Now I am at the point that I really need to do it.  Although I normally don’t have a lot of food waste but enough to keep the worm farm going.  This year its out of control.  I have those three chickens living in my house.  Bags and bags of cage litter were being thrown outside and inside that litter were chicken pellets.  Next thing you know there are the rats.  Between Cornelius and the worm factory, I should be rat free in no time.  When the weather is above freezing Cornelius is around but these past few days its been too cold.  Warming up today and the weekend.

CHRIS

Chris is coming for the weekend.   He will help me worm the sheep and clean the barn.  We will work on the barn Saturday morning.  He is such a great help and lots of company.

SAM

I was cleaning out a file drawer yesterday and found all my cat info.  Sammy will be 19 this year.  With all his trails and tribulations he is going strong.  When he was about 4 he had a blockage and almost died.  It was a frightful event.  From that time on all the cats have been on the special diet for blockages and things have been fine.  He now has a thyroid condition and a respiratory condition both of which he takes pills for.  Each morning I crush up the pills in a pill crusher and mix it with baby food.  If he feels that I have not done this on time he comes looking for me and reminds me with his loud meow’s.  He is an amazing cat but aren’t they all!
