A home inspector that's a worm farmer?  What's a worm casting?  Simply put, it's worm do-do.  Yes, I'm a home inspector serving Montrose, Great Bend, Scranton, and more areas in PA, but we raise red worms to help put our garden.  It's a very easy thing to do and costs only a few dollars to begin.  We started a couple years ago when a friend of mine gave me about 500 red worms.  We fed the worms a daily diet of coffee grounds, old veggies and fruits and apple cores.  After only two years our worm population grew to an incredible 25,000 (and that's estimating LOW!).  Today I harvested the worm castings and placed my worms into a brand new worm bin that we built out in the yard.  Now I have over 200 pounds of the richest fertilzer money can buy.

After a rough start on Day 1 of the vacation, I was hoping that today would be a better day.  WRONG!!!Madison did not sleep well last night due to here new surroundings.  So needless to say, we did not sleep well either.  Plus, add on the fact that it was roughly 45 degrees.  Coming from Florida weather and a warm 80-90 degree climate, we were not prepared for the cool snap.Well, after eating some breakfast, I checked my emails and was shocked at the response I got to Day 1.  After responding to the comments, I had to make my way in to town to the hardware store.  Need to buy some outlet covers to keep the little one from finding out about electricity.  While we were there, I got the names of a couple plumbers to find out about getting the pump to work.After getting the referrences, we ...
