  1. Good luck on your worm and mulch venture. Have you contacted the worm people in Guad and environs (they`re on the internet under "lombriz roja californiana")? One is "Lombricultura Guadalajara" in Zapopan. Also, reportedly and confirmed by the woman in the plaza tienda in Tlachichilco, there is a worm farm a kilometer or so outside of Tlachichilco on 16th de Septiembre (the main road in Tlachichilco). The road becomes nearly impassable a half a klick out except to 4-wheel drives. Haven`t made it past the rough spot yet in our van. GPS: 20.335515, -103.078470
  2. Now we`re cooking! So many possibilities for new products in the new no-plastic-bag world! Love the shipping suit! timjwilson, composting worms can be had at the Tuesday market from Anna Luz (don`t remember her company name) and Juan Diego at Galo Goat Farm. I think a well-labeled vermicomposting bucket on the malecon is doable! Just tell the malecon gardeners what you`re doing.
  3. I replied to your message, look in your message box.
  4. Don`t know how long it`s been since your SUV passed that way but it was simply not possible for our van to pass down that road after the first half of a kilometer. My experience, maybe yours has been different. Yes, I think if we want worms that badly from the guy, we would walk from town. As you say, it wouldn`t be that far and it is a rather bucolic scene - old abandoned adobe houses, animals everywhere, quiet. For now, we`ll be ordering worms from Mercado Libre.
  5. For those considering going to the worm guy outside of Tlachichilco: we tried getting to him today, confirming in a tienda in town that there is indeed a worm guy just outside of Tlachichilco on 16th of Septiembre. We drove down 16th de Septiembre going out of Tlachichilco. However, our van had to stop about halfway there due to the road becoming slowly but surely impassable. The rest of the "road", actually a rude pathway, would only be traversed by foot, horse or someone taking a chance with their small 4 wheel drive vehicle. We could not find the road that is shown on Google going from the carretera to this person`s house. If anyone finds a local supplier for red composting worms or worm castings, please let me know!
  6. Yes, will do. Have you been there yourself or heard about it from someone else? Thanks for all your help, GS.

  8. Finished black earth as in worm castings?
  9. The gate is on 16th de Sept.?
  10. Coming from Chapala, 16 de Sept appears to be the first street going into Tlachichilco? The worm farm appears to be just over km from the carretera? Any idea of their "hours", particularly if they`re open on Saturdays? Or is this a "it`s open when it`s open" kinda place? Thanks so much, GoSolar!
  11. When I do that, I only get a small blank window with "Translate" next to it.
  12. Thanks, I would love the link since I travel that area but am not aware of the old road to Mezcala. Is it the road labeled Juarez on maps?
  13. I added it but how do you use it in a website? When I click on the icon while in a website, the window that comes up is empty, nothing to translate. If, one at a time, I have to select each phrase then drop it into the window, it does not seem worth the trouble.
