Vermicomposting is a composting process that makes use of various species of worms. The end product, called vermicast, is rich in nutrients and loaded with microorganisms that are beneficial in creating and maintaining healthy soil.
Honestly, I am terrified of worms, and I don't know if I would ever be able to touch any of these worms with my bare hands. We'll see in the coming weeks.^^
Meanwhile, the rainy season has started, so our trees are beginning to grow more leaves again. We have stopped gathering leaves during the past months so we can gather all the seeds we will be using for this planting season. We've cut the trees back to a height of about a meter to encourage leaf growth once again.
Unfortunately, cogon also grows extremely well during the rainy season. Since we don't use herbicides, our farm workers have to manually pull out the grass.
