From no fruit to hundreds. That stuff is magic!

We love the VermisTerra worm tea so much!! We couldn’t get avocados from the tree in the past. For our first time, WE HAVE AVOCADOS!! There’re hundreds of them! They’re tiny but everywhere.

We have so many pears blooming. Soon we’ll have big enough fruit to eat and are so excited about it!  The lime tree did nothing last year and it has blossoms now, the plum tree is twiggy but blossoming, the avocado tree has hundreds of blossoms, even the lemon trees have buds.

The wind really shook up our lemon tree. It was just one twig because the wind knocked all the leaves off. My mom watered it with tea and two days later it had leaves, and two days after that it grew the flowers. My mom put some on the herbs too and that’s gotten taller. She was so excited about it, she ordered another gallon of it. It’s very exciting. I can only imagine what next years will look like.

It’s brought back one of our peppers that we thought was for sure done with but it’s growing again. That stuff is magic!  — Victoria Garcia, Rancho Cucamonga CA

Superior Product… Very Impressed With Their Quality

“One of the best fertilizers for organic gardens is worm castings. I use this if I don’t have a great source of compost for my garden… One of my favorite things about worm castings is they contain millions of soil microbes that can increase the population in your garden.

JL Organics is a family run business. It was started in 2002 and is located in Thermal CA. Their products are certified organic and they work with farms to help them switch from chemical farming to organic farming. They help farmers treat sick plants naturally and they also help gardeners to have organic gardens.

Their VermisTerra worm castings are aged 7-10 years and make sure all the undigested compost is broken down. That is really amazing, that they will take 7-10 years to make a very superior product. So we’ve been testing their castings and their teas right here on the farm, and we are very impressed with their quality. So if you don’t have a good source of compost, then I highly recommend that you get some of the VermisTerra worm castings to feed your soil microbes.”

VermisTerra Featured on High Performance Garden Show

As we looked for informative videos about the microbes living in your soil, I found a great explanation from gardening teacher Lynn Gillespie. Lynn is an organic farmer and gardening educator, who specializes in teaching High Performance Garden systems. I loved her video so much I got her permission to transcribe and post it! Watch a video where Lynn explains concepts from Teaming with Microbes Book, How the Soil Food Web Works.

 

As I watched more of her online series, I was so impressed. She teaches how to plant week by week, with little weeds, and lots of production. Her vast knowledge made the very interesting to watch.
After some email correspondence, I sent Lynn some of our VermisTerra earthworm castings and nutrient tea to test in her farm. She already composts but was very impressed at the quality of our worm castings. Here’s what she said on her show (Week 7) about JL Organics. Video will be available soon!

 

 

“One of the best fertilizers for organic gardens Is worm castings. I use this if I don’t have a great source of compost for my garden.

This week I’d like to introduce you to JL Organics, they are an organic worm company that makes VermisTerra worm castings and worm casting teas for gardens and large scale organic farms.

One of my favorite things about worm castings is they contain millions of soil microbes that can increase the population in your garden.

Outstanding Results With Onions & Garlic

“Here in Illinois I started my onions from seed indoors. On or about March 5, 2017 the weather got really nice and I decided to plant my onions outside. About 10 days later we received some really cold weather for about a week with lows 13-18 degrees and highs in the mid 30’s and on top of all that we received 4 inches of snow. My onions were left for dead and was no bigger than a toothpick with only one leaf!

 
Then I went on Calikim’s YouTube channel and that day she had Mindy from VermisTerra talking about their product. The Worm Tea from VermisTerra really caught my interest so I just had to order a gallon of there Worm Tea!

 
I have been using VermisTerra Worm Tea now for about 5 weeks and the results have been nothing short of OUTSTANDING!! My onions are growing strong with at least 7 leaves so far on each plant and look more healthy than ever before! The only thing I have done different this year from past years is the use of VermisTerra Worm Tea! The Tea really works beyond anything I could ever expect.

 
Even though my Garlic was planted last fall as soon as I received my Worm Tea, I started using it on my Garlic! The Garlic plants have gotten so huge and the stocks have gotten so thick that by the looks of things I will have the BEST Garlic crop ever!!
VermisTerra Worm Tea is the real deal and is without any doubt the best product on the market today!!

 
Thank you so much for making such an AMAZING product available to even a small gardener!” – Dan Kelsey, Illinois

Better Bok-Choy in Soil-Less vs Hydroponics

Factory owner Mr. Lin, manufactures home hydroponic systems and petite greenhouses for sale in China.  As organic food gains popularity, more people have interest in growing their own food. Mr. Lin was open to switching to selling soil systems if they could out produce hydro systems. The key was finding a nutrient that was easy for his customers to pop in and grow without much fuss or know how. This year he got his hands on VermisTerra organic worm castings and decided to compare the growth of Asian vegetables in soil vs his hydroponics system.
Comparison of Chinese cabbage “bok choy” grown in hydroponics vs soilless media (coco-coir and VermisTerra worm castings) over two weeks were significant and “better”.

VermisTerra grown plants had:
* Larger and greener leaves
* Hardier thicker stems
* Sweeter taste and better flavor (said his wife)
* Greater average weight of 29% (77g vs 100g)
* Survival of the first leaf from seedling (cotyledon)

With these results, Mr. Lin plans to switch his home greenhouses to include a soilless mix using VermisTerra worm castings.

Success Rooting Woody Herb Cuttings

“I have never had success rooting woody herbs before, but decided to give it a go with VermisTerra worm tea. I took an oregano and rosemary cutting, put them each in a jar of water with a capful of worm tea. I changed the water/tea solution every few days, and they rooted very nice, healthy roots in about three weeks. They grew in the water/tea solution very nicely for a few more weeks, and then I planted them in a small container of soil. Soon they will get planted out in the garden, or given to a friend.” — Kim, Southern CA
aka CaliKim 29 on Youtube.

See her video showing the oregano and rosemary cuttings growing roots Here.

Comment from VermisTerra: The reason why this works so well is because the VermisTerra tea has a pH of 3.8-4 which makes all the elements and trace minerals in the tea available to the cutting! The natural growth hormones get those roots going fast, and the beneficial microbes protect the roots for transplanting!

Lettuce Garden Survives Heat Wave

Lettuce garden – My lettuce garden receives a weekly dose of VermisTerra worm tea, and produced loads of lettuce through a fall heat wave, and is still going strong today, well into the winter. We eat out of it every single day! And because the worm tea makes the plant tissues stronger, the greens last me 7-10 days in the fridge after harvesting! –Kim, Southern CA aka CaliKim29 on Youtube

Strawberry Tower Survives Frost

VermisTerra Earthworm Tea – Liquid Gold
Although I had a worm bin at one time, I found it time consuming and difficult to produce the amount of worm castings I needed for my garden, let along produce worm tea.
VermisTerra does all the heavy lifting with their ready made earthworm tea. Their worm tea is microbial-rich concentrate, shelf-stable, comes in a quart or a gallon size, and is a snap to use on my garden. Along with VermisTerra’s worm castings, I have been using their worm tea in my garden for several month – the results are impressive! I like to call it “liquid gold”.

Strawberry Crate Tower watered with worm tea thrives in frost
Strawberry Crate Towers – Many of you have seen my strawberry crate towers in my videos. To test the effectiveness of VermisTerra worm tea, for several months, I watered one tower with VermisTerra worm tea once a week, and the other towers with the same liquid fertilizer I have always used once a week. The strawberry plants watered with worm tea held up to frosts with minimal damage to the leaves, have larger leaves, and are starting to flower. The plants that did not receive their “cuppa” VermisTerra worm tea had significant more leaf damage after a frost, leaves are smaller, and have no flowers. Worm tea at work!

Sick Lemon Tree Recovers

We make our own guacamole using fruit from our backyard avocado and lemon tree. My 30 year old rough lemon tree became sick and producing small shriveled lemons. I tried many fertilizers but nothing worked. I was afraid it was going to die, so I pruned all the leaves off. I planned to take the tree out and say so long. My grandson came to visit and he wanted to try to save the tree. I didn’t think it was possible, but he watered it with VermisTerra Tea when he came to visit. After about 6 months, what a surprise! It’s come back to life and is already giving healthy lemons! — Carlos Galeazzi, San Gabriel CA

Papaya Tree Produces Triple Amount

My papaya tree usually gives off 10-20 fruits. I usually lose a few to frost. This year my grandson gave me VermisTerra Tea so I used it. Now that one tree has over 60 papayas growing on it. It was also healthy enough to survive a few days of temperatures in the high 30s with no lost fruit! Let me tell you, they are the sweetest papayas that I’ve tasted.  – Carlos Galeazzi, San Gabriel CA
