Interested in 'red wiggler' worm bins in the spring?

OK, I'll admit that the warmer weather got me thinking 'gardening' mode... I had to 'make and take' a red wiggler bin to get full credit for Master Composter degree and the winter had them 'especially happy' in the basement so I have two huge bins ready to share.

OK, I'll admit that the warmer weather got me thinking 'gardening' mode... I had to 'make and take' a red wiggler bin to get full credit for Master Composter degree and the winter had them 'especially happy' in the basement so I have two huge bins ready to share. You need a plastic tub with lid that has 1/4 inch holes punched in top for air and then we tear up newspaper, throw in a little garden dirt, wet so it is like a 'rung out sponge', and put in the worms. They eat 'left over' lettuce, coffee grounds, etc (except onions, peppers, citrus). Easy VERY EASY to care for in basement or garage (some people keep them under the sink..no smell)
This is the best 'soil' you will find and excellent for seedlings. You separate the worms from the 'soil' (I can tell you how) and use the soil in your garden, house plants, etc. YOU MUST NOT put the worms in composters or soil outside as they are not native and they eat constantly and will eat all the surface plants.
If you are interested, please let me know and it will be another reason for spring to come quickly!@

    Hello Varagona,

    E-mail me at KLH@mindspring.com and I send sent you back a whole-mail of information. These worms are kept in bins and produce rich!!! soil for gardens and pots. The are not native to us so they may not go directly in the ground of garden as they eat EVERYTHING that grows and produce rapidly. But I have 'bins' (cheap, easy) and maybe people have bought what they call the 360 bins.

    But you can start out with a plastic bin and go from there and if you like it...you can 'invest'.

    We can talk about a 'compost' bin as well. Never too late...

    Looking forward to your e-mail..

  • Hello! If anyone still needs worms, I have a ton! Send me a PM to erinlynn 60618 @ gmail.com These are originally from Kitty's batch.

This is why i firmly believe politics and private business needs to remain separate. I have been following this situation closely. As a longtime resident I wasn't overly thrilled a bar was replacing provenance. We need locally sourced retail in our neighborhood, as this helps grow the core of what we are all about. I have shopped and supported provenance for over 6 years and was very upset they were leaving their space. I attended a community meeting a few weeks back and was completely surprised by what I heard. Most importantly, these were 3 local residents I.e. small business owners. They planned to keep a retail component w/ their business model, adding produce also & plans to expand to a full on wine/packaged goods & retail component in the building. This wasn't just a bar as what I read on here and provenances FB page. I was very disappointed to find out though that provenance, who started this campaign to stay in the spot via reaching out to the alderman, is now playing dirty pool.

The owners of provenance have quietly spread the word they may be staying. It appears they are threatening to remain in the space unless they are compensated by the building owner in an effort to block the new owners from buying the building. Was this the advice of the alderman interactions? To play the role of poor me then threaten to squat to block a sell of the building? Did the building owner or new owner do something illegal here by giving them 60 days notice to vacate after not agreeing to extend their lease per Provenances FB page? If this is true, Shame on you Provenance for rallying support of our neighborhood, then trying to extort payment because apparently it's only your right to do business in the space.

Signed,
a very disappointed FORMER customer.

The last time I called I told the receptionist that I had left several messages, so she said she would give the right person my contact information, and I still never heard back. I was calling about simple things such as: recycling for our block and what can be done about all the solicitation material that is left on our front steps and gates. I even called to try and make an appointment with the Alderman to discuss items in person since I work until 5:30 and cannot make it to his Monday community meetings by 6pm, but did not get a call back. His website says “An operator will take your contact information and record your issues and concerns.Then you will be referred to the proper staff or receive a call back.” But this is not true. Has anyone had any luck with Alderman Maldonado’s office?

    It should not require a visit to get something done.

I really want to stay in this neighborhood, but miss living in a tiny little studio.

    @Tracy -

    1) I have no context into your situation so I'm not making any judgements. It's also your right to decry the CACC (which, by the way, isn't a "business" - it's a government entity).

    2) Rescues, including PAWS, do not just blindly take in animals and tell the individual(s) releasing those animals that they are taking them. PAWS, like the CACC, is very transparent, and will tell you immediately where the animal will be placed. Sometimes that's with them, but often times, you are correct - they often go to the CACC (PAWS is usually close to full at all times, as that's the entire point of their organization). However there is no conspiracy to "hide" this - it is in fact spelled out clearly when releasing an animal to them.

    3) There is no issue with you stating what is already transparent information, but you clearly have an ax to grind with the CACC. You may consider the CACC "nasty", but editorializing an organization that's both needed in the city (by the population as well as animal rescues) and actively working towards animal welfare is doing no one any favors with your narrow viewpoint. You may have had an unfortunate situation with the CACC, but it's also unfair to paint the org as universally reviled because of it (hence my comments).

    4) I'm not going to have a discussion on CACC politics and operations and further derail this thread.

    If that dog's owners cannot be found (and as @rogerparker says, owners are told to check the CACC first and foremost) and she ends up at the CACC, I can guarantee you that as long as she's not horribly reactive to anyone who approaches her that dog will stay there MAYBE a month (more like two weeks at most). Dogs like that have no problem finding homes and are snapped up instantly at the CACC.

Chihuahua Running Loose in Logan

    I have used Creative Glass and Mirror for an all custom tile base frameless shower stall, and they installed including readjustment by taking it back and grinding to fit the sloping floor etc.but they were not cheap (close to $2000). In a more standard installation, I have used the Dreamline frameless shower door that is available online at Faucet Direct for about $600 (door+12" wide stationary glass for an alcove, so no sides), and they have glass available at increments of one inch, with further adjustments made at the wall end with an adjustable aluminum extrusion, so it may be possible to find one that fits. Also, when one of the tempered glass pieces imploded while installing it, they said no problem and sent me a replacement, with no charge. I hope this helps.

  • Last November, I closed on a beautiful home here in Logan Square. In the master bath there is a fancy custom tile shower with 5 sprayers. The only thing it was missing was a nice glass door. My wife wanted it to be a steam shower sans a real steamer.

    Based on a recommendation from EB, we used Ashland Glass and the door is beautiful. Half inch thick glass (very sturdy), and done beautifully. I'll be using them again for some of my next projects. Big fan!

The weeds get so tall they literally bury the fire hydrant for that part of the block and get so long that they are encroach the sidewalk. After several weeks go by either myself or a neighbor will go over there just to make the sidewalk and hydrant accessible.

The house is not abandoned and it is not a story of little old grandma. I see twenty-somethings coming in and out of there all the time.

I know some neighbors have already explained the problem to them to no avail they just let it grow au naturale.

Provenance Food and Wine to close Sep 27 & what you can do about it

In a nutshell, new landlords didn't renew their lease and they will have to vacate by September 27.

http://chicagoist.com/2014/08/07/provenance_food_wines_logan_square.php

Apparently, Alderman Moreno wants to help, so calling all neighbors to call/write the Alderman to help Provenance stay at its current location through the holiday season. This is the only way the owners will at least be in a position to consider keeping the store in the neighborhood, given the financial burden of moving. The alderman's chief of staff's e-mail is Raymond.Valadez@cityofchicago.org.

The questions you pose are imponderables, and have existed since the birth of government. Why did one who pled his case before Hammurabi deserve to be recognized before the thousands of other cases that could have warranted the emperor's attentions? Ask, and you may or may not receive.

While I realize the person who is parked there may appreciate it, most of the doorbells you ring will not be that person. Perhaps they sleep later than 6:50? Or perhaps they (like me) have a sleeping todder who will will be cranky all day when woken over an hour early?

IMO they should just tow the cars. The signs are posted and the construction is obvious.

    I pretty sure they will, based on the 30 day restricted parking. It needs it!

  • Hayek Not FDIC Insured | May lose value

    So I guess I was wrong on that. No sign of them repaving the southbound side of Kedzie. And no sign of them filling that 20x20 area they seem to have forgotten about near Cortland, either. Thank goodness I sold the low-rider.

ComEd fridge recycling program

Hi. Has anyone used the ComEd pickup/recycleing program? Did they pickup when they said they were going to? Did you have to wait around all day? They must've had quite a response because they used to pay $50 not $35.

  • It's because it is a energy savings program. They are supposed to recycle old energy inefficient frigs that are working, to get them out of use. Lots of people look for these to put in a basement or garage as a second frig not knowing that they use so much electricity that they are actually paying more to have these frigs. The pay back on a new frig can be 5 years or sometimes less. This is the only appliance in your house that is on 24/7/365.

  • Thank you John! That makes sense!

Yard waste, weed removal service?

Do any of you know of a service in Logan Square you would recommend for removing some weeds, yard waste and old landscaping materials? We bought a house last summer, and there is an area in the back yard near the alley gate where the previous owners stacked some old stone pavers and piles of pulled weeds and yard waste.

Do any of you know of a service in Logan Square you would recommend for removing some weeds, yard waste and old landscaping materials? We bought a house last summer, and there is an area in the back yard near the alley gate where the previous owners stacked some old stone pavers and piles of pulled weeds and yard waste. The area is now also overgrown with live weeds. I'm looking for someone to come and pull the weeds and remove and haul away the old yard waste and stones, and clean the area out. Why haven't I done this myself, you ask? Because a few rats and copious spiders are currently lodging in there, and I'm a scaredy-cat (no offense to cats) and I just can't. Any suggestions?

Oh, also taking recommendations for a tree removal service (it's a medium sized mostly-dead old apple tree). Thanks!
