Everything Germinates in the Worm Bin Experiment: Worm Bin Adventures in the Philippines
This isn't exactly the part 2 of my worm bin seed germination experiment. I was trying to see how long it would take watermelon, chico and mango seeds to germinate in my worm tray. These days, I only put food in my worm bins when most of the food has been consumed by the worms. In one particular bin though, it was taking a few days for the worms to even touch a carrot top. I figured it was a tough vegetable and was taking its sweet time to decompose. Tonight though, I found out why. The carrot top sprouted some stalks! Oh well, I might as well continue growing it. I'll move it to a pot with filled with vermicast in a few days. Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for mangoes and company to sprout!
