If you don't have that kids' song in your head now, you're better off than I am.
So we got some new earthworms for our compost. You know what I love about earthworms? They take my discarded veggie peelings and eat them, magically making old vegetables into new dirt. It works so well I've been amazed.
Is it perfect? No. We don't buy organic produce as a general rule, since organic is still more expensive than pesticide-laden. So, my happy little earthworms are eating chemicals, and turning them into soil with pesticides in it, too. Which means that although I'm not using any fertilizers or anti-bug goop on my veggies, there's a secondhand chemistry class growing my plants. What can I do about it? Until I have the budget for organic veggies, I'm just hoping that I'm not adding too much to the superbug thing. Not to mention that's it's also going into me, again.
In the meantime, my only pets are small and wiggly and turn rubbish into dirt. On the upside, at least they don't poo on my carpet.
