This will be about the last week of the season to apply #earthworm tea, as it will be to cold.
Herron Farms Magic Dirt #herronfarmsmagicdirt and
Herron Farms Magic Tea #herronfarmsmagictea are a propitiatory blend,
To make a good fast batch for yourself just get some pure worm castings, un-chlorinated water, some real honey-not the Chinese stuff, kelp, bat she-ite,
mix with a paint mixer on a drill, in a 5 gal. bucket,
4 gal. water
2 cups of pure worm she-ite,
2 TBL of Kelp
2 TBL honey
2 TBL of bat she-ite
mix for about 5 mins, use it all within 4-5 hours, can dilute 10-1, so this will make 40 Gal.
filter to spray, or just use as a side dressing,

My experience with keurig,
I will try to make this as short as possible, the task will be difficult at best, since it just plain unbelievable.
On September 14, 2014 My wife and I were talking and I said, you know what, I cant take it anymore, I am going to go up to Wal-Mart(I hate going there)and get one of those keurig coffee makers, after all, I have been dreaming of owning one, since my first use of one in Atlanta in 2007, before I was laid off due to the dark age’s. I loved that coffee, use to use 2 kcups, to make one 8 oz cup of very strong coffee.
I have been waiting patently, at first for them to hit the common market, then to come down in price, then for the kcups to become more reasonable. She, as in my wife Linda said, you saw my note, see, she was going to buy one for me, for my birthday, my son had gave her, 2 case’s, with 4 box’s of 24 in each one to include with it. These were the same keurig kcups we had used at his house, with an almost identical keurig coffee maker.
So, we get to wal-mart only to realize, there is more than 4 types keurig on the shelf, wow. The biggest difference I saw was the water reservoir, we read each box, over and over to make sure. Then I called my son and asked him, if he knew of any difference, we wanted to make sure there was no problems miss matching coffee and kcups, like he said, if it said kcups, they should all logically fit, and work. That is logical. So we went over and analyzed all the kcups for sale, hmmm seemed simple enough, to make sure there was no problem, I bought one of those refillable thingys as well, but heck, there was at least a half dozen of those, so here we go reading each package again, keep in mind, each time I have to reed, out come the glass’s, and the small print may take me a while. I can read it, but it is much slower going than it used to be.
Okay, so now we have a keurig, a refillable thingy, 8 box’s of 24 kcups, we are set. And to boot, there is a sample pack included.
We get home, I am so proud, finally a keurig, I am sure they will be out of style soon, I thought. But still, I put away the flee market coffee maker that we paid 6.00 for 3 years ago, after our 135.00 grind and brew gave out after only 6 months. Let me add, the 6.00 one is the exact same model we paid 135.00 early for. I unpack the keurig, read the box again, browse though the manual, and put in a kcup from the sample pack, wow, just what I needed. I was in heaven. I love certain things and good strong black coffee(fresh) is one of them. Now is when the night mare begins and seems to never end.
I go and get one of the case’s of coffee my son got for me, and open it, 4 box’s of 24, wow, I was so happy. I open one and insert it, and walla, I get the dreaded oopps message, I was stunned, I rechecked all the box’s, reading every detail. Strange, I scratched my head and tried another, oopps message again, well now I am starting to Jones, I need another great cup of coffee. Ahh, I have the handy dandy back up refillable thingy, yep that is what I will do, another oopps message.
I am now getting irritated, I can see the potential for a nightmare to be. I reluctantly call the number on the screen, nice person finally answered, she explained how the labels were different, and how I needed this label and that. I rolled my eyes and thought you have got to be kidding. She said someone would call tomorrow(Monday) and make things right. I was dumfounded, what about my coffee, I want a cup of coffee. Called my son after and told him, he couldn’t believe it. In the morning, 3 am mind you, I get up, and used the carafe one, week tasting, didn’t even finish it. I go to a job, still no coffee, waiting on that phone call, all day I had to endure tela marketers calling, hoping each one was keurig. Finally, before heading to a new job, I stopped at racetrack gas station and got a cup of coffee, to hot to drink, set in my cup holder, of my nice clean never had a Styrofoam cup in it Dodge Ram. As I get on the free way, it flips out of the holder, and now I not only get no caffeine, I have coffee everywhere. I am getting kind of irritated now. See, I would normally take my thermos full of coffee, no Styrofoam cup.
I do the next job, and on my way home, go way out of my way to food lion, to get a box of kcup coffee, and a box of kcup tea. 20 bucks.
I come home and beet, I lay down for about an hour, only to wake up, and the new kcups don’t work either. Still no phone call back from keurig. Now im getting pissed. Called the oopps number again. Here goes the spew about all the different kinds and labels and on and on, finally she said she would get her supervisor, that didn’t work, and she said she would have her call me, finely she did. Here we go again, all I hear is the same old excuse’s, this color that color, I must have got the wrong box, she gave me a credit for 4 box’s, ½ of what I have and cant use, and guaranteed the tea box would work fine. Still without coffee, irritated to no end. We went to bed, got up this morning, got out the old coffee maker, because I now have come to the harsh reality, it will be about a week or 2 before I get my kcups that I ordered on line to replace less than ½ the ones that I have and wont work.
So, the wife gets up, you have got to be kidding me, the tea I just bought doesn’t work either, we have orange labels, white labels and non work.
So, here we sit, with no coffee or tea, and spent almost 400.00 so far, I cant take this back, if I do, I will be out over 250.00 just for coffee alone, let alone the gas and time it has cost me so far. And I still wont have coffee that I want.

Thanks for making the last two weeks the best year ever, European Nightcrawlers have out sold my red wiggler worms again. and for the last two weeks, it has been non stop harvesting and shipping.
had a few orders of over 100 pounds each, this is going to be a very interesting year for worm sale's. Looks like several people have thrown in the towel. I can tell by the large orders.
European's do make great fishing bait, that is for sure.

It is amazing to see, just how many people are so deperate for money, that they scour the internet, looking for someones hick up.
I have more than 15 different "free" websites that I try to keep maintaied, along with raise rabbits, show rabbits.
Raise chickens and sell the eggs
Raise bee's for the education and Honey
Raise min pin, and chiwowa's
Raise African nightcrawlers
Raise European nightcrawlers
Raise Solger fly's
Raise mealworms for fishing and the chickens
I now have taken a part time job to help me pay the tax's on farming for a living.
so, the point to that is, I am over worked and underpaid,
and to have a person try to get free worms because of a glitch is just iritating, most people would just point something so trivial out, and in turn I might even send them some free worms.
This person has now filed a complaint with the BBB......It is people like him that makes people charge so much........
Please-----tell me if you saw an advertized price, a price, that you know was unreal, you would pay it much atention....
Like....8 pounds of European nightcrawlers for 40.00 that was listed on a side menu, on my home page.........after he brought it to my atention and asked, not only for the 8 pounds, but wanted a total of 16 pounds.....Talk about greed......
I could not change the typo, I tried and tried, and dont remember putting it in there. so I just deleated the whole side bar..............
So for those of you that wonder how and why I have a complait listed with the BBB, that is why. and how it came about.........

African Nightcrawlers Eudrilus Eugeniae will start shipping monday,
It has been a very long and cold winter, I and many other have lost lots of worms due to the extreem cold.
It set records at many place's including here. 2 deg. one morning, for metro Atlanta, that is unherd of.
the trucks carring the mail from post to post are not heated, and it turned out to be the weekest link, even with heat packs and insulated box's.
5 good freinds and fellow worm farmers, very large. just threw in the towel, so, this should make for an interesting year, to say the least.
I have had the phone ringing off the hook, and the email is unbearable. worm grower's and supplyers everywhere, are looking for more souce's. people wanting 400 pounds per week, 100 pounds per week and it dosent seem to stop. thats a lot of worms folks..........with that much demand, and so little supply, I had no choice but to raise my price's......I am sorry, but it cost me more to replenish my stock as well.
with the new MMJ market, it has opened people's eyes, to how good worm tea, and casting's realy are.
worms, realy do, eat my garbage, I havent paid for, or needed garbage pick up for over 4 years now. it hit 36.00 per month, that was it......thats about 450.00 per year....instead, I feed my worms my garbage.
