  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. Yes, will do. Have you been there yourself or heard about it from someone else? Thanks for all your help, GS.

  5. Finished black earth as in worm castings?
  6. 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!
  7. When I do that, I only get a small blank window with "Translate" next to it.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. Have done my scouting. As many have found in their area, there are no worms on my property.
  11. I use Chrome. Any ideas for translating the Mercado Libre site?
  12. I didn`t see a pm. I`ll be ordering the worms as soon as I can figure out the Spanish on the mercado libre site! When I have them, I`ll try to pm you.
  13. Cronopio, happy to go in with you on an order from mercado libre. I don`t need even their minimum order amounts of 1 kilo.
  14. Wow, Tiny, thanks! I didn`t know the right words for Mercado Libre. Ordering now.
  15. Does anyone have few composting worms they can give me for starting a very small vermiculture system for my kitchen waste? Gracias.
  16. Yeah, what a weird combination, huh? All 3 are for creating an indigo dye bath. I`ve used the usual US-purchased materials up to now but getting them from the US is expensive so I`m trying out the local versions. Hope they work, the internet literature says they will.
  17. Can fructose be purchased lakeside?
  18. Any know of where Rit color remover can be found lakeside?
  19. Thanks, found out all I need is standard cal.
  20. What is the difference between the kind you cook with and the hardware store kind? Are these calcium hydroxide? Gracias.
  21. Where can I find cal locally? And, is this calcium hydroxide? Thanks.
  22. The first two weeks in June are hot like May is, but the last 2 weeks are cooler because of the rains.
