    Well, you answered something I have been wondering about and now that I know the answer I feel kind of silly because I should have figured it out.

    Worms eat decaying matter, not roots which are living. LOL LOL

    Thanks John.

    I was told not to add red wigglers to my raised bed 🙁 you say it's ok. I'm confused!

  • dlt205 1 year ago

    I read that you don't till so what do you do with the stems and root balls before replanting?

    Great video.

    To anyone who is looking to increase your worm population in your soil.  I've found that layering cardboard on the top and then covering it over with a mulch greatly increases your worm populations.  The top layer of material won't break down so you want to make sure the cardboard is completely covered.

    I've had as much as 5 layers of cardboard all vanish in one growing season and my soil went from mostly hard clay to moderately rich topsoil in 1 year.  The worm populations increased exponentially.

    Thank goodness for worms

    Live soil is king. Worms, fungi and aerobic bacteria metabolize organic compounds into soluble nutrients that plants can use readily. Not to say that comercial fertilizer doesnt work good but over time the soil dies. I perfer organic over chemical fertilizer. Thank you john for your videos they are educational.

    If it works for you that's all that matters. I've been using above ground beds here in LA. Co. for the past 8 years. I've never once seen a worm in my gardens and always have bumper crops of anything I choose to plant. It actually amazes me how well stuff grows here, and year round lol. Here it is the end of June and I have Lettuces flourishing in my back yard! My Pumpkins are looking awesome and the watermelons. We just harvested our corn and it was unbelievable. 4 varieties of Tomatoes Producing new color daily and all I ever put in my beds each year is cow poop and kellogg bagged soil to replenish what dissolves into the ground. Grow on!

    He keeps bragging he has a giant sized raised garden for vegetables in his FRONT yard. I bet his neighbors love him. Not.  Don't get me wrong. I'm an avid gardener, but know veggies belong in the back yard, out of site. You don't landscape with staked tomatoes, squash, pepper plants and chard growing five feet tall.

    Why not? It looks butt ugly and drags down everybody's real estate value.

    when you are talking about rock dust are you talking about the dust that comes off rocks as they are being crushed.

    Great advice on the importance of building your soil!

  • corporatejungles 1 year ago

    Did you put red wigglers in there or did they just appear themselves?
