    I took a walk in the rain yesterday for many good reasons. It was very pleasant:-)

    As I compose kitchen waste, ie orange peels, banana peels in the backyard soil, the earth-worm shows up with enlarged belly. When you see there is a white ring around earth-worm's belly, it indicates the worm is pregnant. 
    My soil become soft, loose and moist.

    I conserve toilet water by collecting urine to water the garden. Also reuse kitchen water to water the garden.

      I also compose kitchen waste in the garden when there is space. The soil became moist and soft.
