RWC 1000th Blog Post!

Wow, it seems like only yesterday that we were celebrating the 600th blog post here at Red Worm Composting! In actuality, it was nearly two years ago! Time flies when you are playing with worms.

On this monumental occasion (who’da thunk we’d get this far?!), I thought it would be fun to look back and reflect on some of the more memorable blog posts. Unfortunately, the selection process was a wee bit biased (LOL)…but of course, I welcome any and all other memorable/favorite posts people want to mention in the comments section. I’m sure I’ve forgotten many more good ones than I can remember!

    It seems like just a month ago you were announcing temporary retirement…and here we are now at 1000 post!

    Once a wiseguy, always a wiseguy, eh John!! LOL
    I don’t recall the word “retirement” (or even “temporary retirement”) being uttered at any point. I “stepped away” then “stepped back”! Haha

    Looking forward to 1000 more posts, and lots more comments from you!

  1. Congratulations Bentley! We can always count on you for good content including your zany experiments.

    Hey Bentley congratulations on that 1000th post! I’m glad you posted the favorites as the very last one is what I really needed to read after letting my Worm Inn dry out. Repopulating with a handful of juveniles from my aquaponics setup that was itself in a shut down mode left me wondering how long before I’ve got real processing power again. Now I have a good idea!

    Btw I really stocked up my lasagna garden(my favourite posts along with trenches) this fall with shredded leaves, fresh cut grass and kitchen scraps and plan to restock it with redworms in the spring.

  2. I have found it so valuable to read your blog. Someday I hope to participate in some of your other offerings as well.

    Because of my appreciation for your work, I have nominated you for the One Lovely Blog award! I don’t know if you know about that award, and others like it,but its a way for bloggers to receive appreciation for their work and to also let the world know about the blogs you like a lot.
