Establishing your own worm bin has a two-fold advantage. First, it will make good use of vegetable scraps and secondly, the worm casings, known as vermicompost, act as a highly-effective fertilizer in the garden.
Elephant seals, and lots of them. That’s one reason we adventured to San Simeon, the town of Hearst Castle, along the central coast of California. At the time of this writing, it’s the birth and breeding season for these big ol’ blubbery girls at San Simeon’s Elephant Seal Lookout.

It's a turkey? It’s a peasant? No, it’s Guinea Fowl!
