Arrr, good Soil (part 2) Gar.

Aye, so, now Me have 3 quarts o' sifted dirt and 1 quart o' pebbles.

When I finished the last batch Me just sat ran my hand through the dirt. Aye, me parrot concurs.

Aye, It feels 'ery nice. Me tried t' get J t' touch it but he just yelled at me.
The clean dirt still has t' dry some more before Me can start makin' Dorodangos. The shell makin' process verily requires dry dust.

The high quality o' the dirt also got me thinkin' about doin' 'ermiculture in the kitchen (since the landlord nixed the outdoor compost) But that suggestion also caused J t' yell at me. probably just as well, we don't have 'ery good temperature control in our apartment and the worms would probably die in summer. Gar.

I am doing vermiculture in my basement.

I have a Can o Worms system... with layered trays... It works pretty well. I have had them all summer and haven't yet put the second bin on....

I need to get a traditional composter though.. for my yard waste..

I think they are doing well. It doesn't smell.. so that is a good sign :>P

Wikipedia is silent on the subject of dorodangos. Would you please explain for us ignorant schlubs?

Hikaru Dorodango: Shining Mud Ball

I posted about it just 9 days ago

Basically, it is a ball of mud that for various reasons is hard and shiny.

That is strange... I just went to Wikipedia and I couldn't find "dorodango" when I did a search, but there is an entry! I had posted it already!

I didn't yell at Zahde. I objected loudly and amusingly.
