Thread: Ranee and anyone else who has patio or deck gardens and container gardens

    Default Ranee and anyone else who has patio or deck gardens and container gardens

    There is a local company here that makes one of the best worm
    composters available.
    They have a whole system of 'circular' gardening, compost, grow, eat
    the vegetables, compost the waste, grow the veggies.

    I have no 'interest' in the company, but their product is great and I
    thought those of you who have container gardens might be able to use
    something like this. I really like the idea of recycling as much as
    is possible and this is the perfect way to use up kitchen waste and
    make great garden soil out of it.

    Check it out.

    Without contact with the ground those things are worthless as
    composters... they ferment, they turn organic material into smelly
    slime... they do not compost. With no access to the ground any worms
    introduced will die, they will dehydrate, cook, freeze, or drown.

    I've been composting for most of my life, for as long as I've been
    gardening. This is the best composter I've found, it is the only one
    with a 25 year warranty. I've been using mine for almost 25 years and
    it's still good as new... but most importantly it works well. When I
    bought mine it cost $40. Wehn I bouhgt it I also ordereded the
    stirrers, I never use them, all I do is add more organic matter, never
    bother to stir, it works all by itself.
    http://www.composters.com/compost-bi...5-gal_17_1.php
    I don't bother with the bottom doors, in the spring I simply lift up
    the entire thing and move it to a new spot (they now offer a bottom
    screen, I'd not use it), leaving the mound of compost behind to do
    with as I will. Many of my neighbors after seeing it bought one too.
    My next door neighbor spent $600 on a giant gear driven drum, not only
    didn't it compost, the plastic gear teeth broke as it couldn't support
    the weight of even a half load, paid for a lot of useless plastic:
    http://www.composters.com/compost-tu...allon_33_2.php
    He bought two Earthsavers. I showed him mine before he bought that
    stupid tumbler but his ego wouldn't let him consider my simple
    composter... took two years and one day I saw him setting up two
    Earthsavers. For cook-outs he fills his tumbler with ice and uses it
    as a $600+ beer cooler. LOL

    Sheldon, not everyone has access to acreage like you do. These
    earthworm composters are meant for people who live in a city or
    neighborhood with limited space. They do work. They are designed to
    work very well. Just because you look down your nose at them doesn't
    make them bad.

    If you bothered to look at the website and read how they work you
    might not come off looking uninformed and judgmental.

    Opinionated pricks like you and me can't afford to be wrong very often
    without looking stupid. Your batting average is too low to pass. If
    mine ever sinks that low, I hope someone tells me.

    My composter takes no more space that that thing, maybe even has a
    smaller footprint. The main difference is mine give worms and
    microbes access to the ground... to survive those organisms must have
    free access to the ground.

    >They do work. They are designed to

    That type doesn't work at all, it can't compost... it's a garbage
    fermenter... it no more composts than the collection bucket one has on
    their countertop... that stupid thing will stink and attract vermin is
    all.

    >If you bothered to look at the website and read how they work you
    >might not come off looking uninformed and judgmental.


    I did read everything at the web site, the same typical bs as similar
    web sites Lots of companys make similar gadgets but none of them
    work... they simply rip off those who have more dollars than brain
    cells. Any six year old who has fished a pond knows that night
    crawlers can live at most a week without access to the ground. All
    the organisms that compost are extremely temperature/climate
    sensitive, to live they must have free access to the ground and have
    enough earth in order to burrow at least ten feet deep... worms are
    called night crawlers because they do their business at night when the
    surface is cooler. And there are a lot of worms, it's silly to buy
    any for composting... did ya know that the weight of all the
    earthworms on the planet far supasses the weight of all other living
    creatures combined, that's a fact. And it's mostly the various
    microbes that compost, the worms eat the microbes and produce castings
    (castings are primarily mineral), however the more important benefit
    of earthworms is aeration and the protein they supply. The most
    important benefit of worms is their place in the food chain... without
    worms the highest life form on this planet would be microbes.

    It's also a great way to train the rabbits and voles through reward to
    eat at your fruit trees, so in times of short food supply they can eat
    the tree bark and roots and kill the tree. It's much more
    advantageous to first compost the scraps and then strew the compost...
    or at least toss those scraps a distance from your trees. One of the
    best ways to fertilize a tree is to place a birdfeeder nearby...
    thousands of birds will fertilize your tree one poop at a time.

    That is the kind I use. Our town was giving them away for free at first
    and then sold second units for about $15. I have two of them. I just
    throw the garbage on top and once in a while when i need a bit of good
    top soil I open it up and dig some out of the bottom.

    I don't know why the rotating model should be anymore use to city
    dwellers with smaller lots. They take up just as much room.

    Well, a lot of city dwellers have maybe a balcony or patio and not a
    "lot".

    That's good for breeding fruit flies. They won't
    have to fly so far to find fruit.

    Yes, the footprint is the same... in fact many of the tumbler tye have
    a larger footprint. I think city people fall for the hype because
    they don't have a spot that isn't paved... then they'd best forget
    about composting... why would someone with no bare ground want to
    compost anyway, just buy a sack of potting soil for their two pot
    plants.
