Our Second Batch Of Red Wrigglers From The Municipal Agriculture


Woo-hoo! We are blessed!

Just this morning, brought about by some drive in me, I was anxious to get to the bottom of this so-called "irregular government practices" that we thought of giving it a go again and visit the local agriculture departments. I can't really say for certain about the issue as we only got second-hand information that agriculture LGUs have no red wrigglers or worms for composting.

So there, without further plans and just a spur-of-the-moment visit, hubby and I went back to all those LGUs and requested for what we need, even planning to negotiate on purchasing just half a kilo of the red wrigglers if we get disapproved.

First stop was the neighboring town's agriculture office. Sad, they closed by 2:00 PM because they simply had to leave early. "Your taxes are working for you" rang in my head.

So we went to our own local agriculture department next. It was quite a surprise really, the department head and all employees were in today on a Friday! Apparently it's their salary day, and good for us, they were so generous! The head of agriculture was kind to write us a note of approval so we can pick-up our "first" batch of red wrigglers (African Night crawlers). He approved our request for 30 pieces. And when we got to the Municipal Nursery we were given much more, around 50! Now that is surprising!

I am just as excited to try my hand in this vermiculture business by beginning small. I'm still considering it as an experiment if we can make them grow and multiply sooner. Once again, I will keep you greenie folks posted with my worm composting how to articles.

Sepia Saturday #1 - Pre-school Graduation Photo

Just came across this new meme I found, and I think it's very timely that I had a good laugh this week when our pre-school and elementary graduation photos from 1978 and 1984 were shared online in preparation for our alumni homecoming this December.

This photo was taken when I was 6 years old, March 1978.


This is my Sepia Saturday post and my first! Find more at Sepia Saturday 80

Happy Father's Day To All Fathers All Over The World

June is the month we celebrate Father's Day. This year 2011, the day falls on June 19.

Father's Day marks fatherhood to honor and commemorate our fathers and forefathers. It is a great time to let your father know you haven't forgotten him and also show him how much you value and respect him.

I personally cannot relate that much, having lost my father at a very young age. I have not known a father's love and protection. Thankfully, though, I have had uncles on my mother's side show me somehow how a father supports, guides and cares for his children. Yet often I wondered what my father's love really is, if he had lived long enough.

Many years in Father's Day celebrations later, I realize that indeed God's love as our Almighty Father is more than the love our earthly father ever could give. It really is amazing to know that God fills the emptiness of having grown up with no father or even with a distant father.

To all fathers, here is our Almighty Father's example. Happy Father's Day to you all!

Our First Batch Of Red Wrigglers

Finally, after months of waiting, we got our first half-fistful batch of red wrigglers (African Night Crawlers). About 10-15 worms, I just hope! :)

They are not a lot, but we heard they can multiply as much as 3 times a day or so, we'll see.And I'm just excited to begin feeding them the compost I've been preparing for a long time!

Why it took so long, it seems that despite the vast quantity of the red wrigglers at the local agriculture department in town and in the nearby red wriggler farms, there were no red wriggler worms for sale. Up to this time I also wonder why. But oh my, I'm just ecstatic to have our first batch!

So here they are quietly in this improvised vermiculture bin made out of a used biscuit pail - courtesy of my hubby. Hubby also placed a fine mesh cloth at the bottom and on the cover so they wouldn't escape.


We are being extra careful with them because these red wrigglers supposedly cost 500-800 pesos a kilo, depending where the red wriggler farm is located.

What a relief to go onto the next level! In the meantime, will keep you posted, my greenie folks ;)

Meet Me On Monday

1. What is was the last piece of candy that you ate?


Safari Chocolate Bar is as good as the well-known chocolate candy bars but costs less.

2. Do you "read" in the bathroom?
Nope. Not my thing anymore.

3. I can't stand when someone _________?

Lies about a story. Especially if I know exactly what really happened because I was also
there, and the person lying maybe "forgot" that I know the truth and ignores me to just continue with his/her story.

I am always for the truth, no matter how ugly or unbecoming the truth is, I believe that someone should just tell the truth. It will make all things better in the very end.

Now you got in my thoughts there, Hannibal Lecter :)

4. Do you do daily, weekly or monthly grocery shopping?
Weekly,preferably. We used to grocery shop daily this last summer, but
now that school has officially begun and we are busy, weekly shopping is imperative.
