[insert evil laugh] 😆
This morning I received a very exciting package in the mail! Can you guess what it is?
Yes indeedy, my friends, RT Solutions has sent me my very own 3 lb sampler tub of Worm Power worm castings! I’m so excited, that I just can’t hide it. I’m about to lose control…and I think I like it…like it!
Sorry folks, let’s just say the arrival of my Worm Power caps off a productive and enjoyable morning. SO… I feel good… I knew that I would! SO good…
Ok, I’m going to stop now!
Just to show you how much fun I’m having, I’ve even included a scary (yet goofy) picture of me enjoying the Worm Power ‘bouquet’ – no, I’m not referring to flowers! Fine castings are like fine wine, and the ‘smell test’ is a good way to quickly get some idea of the quality. I was greeted with the rich, earthy aroma associated with high quality garden soil. In case you didn’t know, this smell is actually produced via the activities of ‘actinomycetes’, a group of fungi-like bacteria that play an important role in the (aerobic) decomposition of organic wastes.
Next, we move on to the ‘look and feel’ of the material. High quality worm castings should have a dark crumbly appearance/texture, almost like coffee grounds (can be lighter in appearance if lighter coloured feedstock is used, but should still have a similar texture). Worm Power passes with flying colours in that department. If I remember correctly, they actually let the worms process the material twice (ie. it passes through the flow-through reactor and is then re-added to the top).
So, what exactly am I going to do with all these wonderful castings?
With great power, comes great responsibility…
In the meantime, be sure to check out the Worm Power website!
P.S. Compost marketing 101 – if you are selling compost (and related products), don’t just sell ‘soil’, ‘worm castings’, or ‘compost’. Sell ‘Worm Power Gold’! Ok, so that name is already taken…but I think you get my drift!
P.S.S. In case you are wondering about my interview with the guys from Worm Power…rest assured, it is still in the works! [UPDATE: You will find the interview >>HERE<<] [tags]worm power, worm castings, rt solutions, worm compost, vermicompost, compost, soil amendments, organic, fertilizer[/tags]
