    I need to Ry worm composting again. Just as soon as I knit up all the yarn that is being stored in the Rubbermaid boxes that were the worm farm.


    Well *I* can certainly tell that those are happy worms. Just look at their little faces!


    Red wigglers are happy by definition! Have you checked into using chicken grit for your wigglers? The feed store should have it. I've seen it in different grits; the finest was like sand. Mr Jeffries looks happy (to be heading inside), too!


    You're back again! And with more interesting things to read about. I am so glad to see you. I don't want a worm farm, but I think that is very interesting. Keep coming back, Norma!


    I missed you Norma! The worms are very interesting! Do you dump the whole works on the garden next summer so they can continue doing their wormly thing? Or are they forever houseworms? :D

    Good to see you back with a blog post - I miss you! Very interesting to hear how the worm farm works. Happy worms, no smelly scraps, happy garden, no snow hiking = win/win/win/win!


    auntiemichal, I LOVE that idea! I didn't know there was such a thing, so thank you for mentioning it. I will go to my feed store stat to get some!!!!


    Marilyn, they will be forever house worms! But they do reproduce, and so I might either start another tower, or put some of them in the garden. When you are ready to empty a tray you are supposed to push all the earth to one side, with some fresh food in the corner, which will draw the worms out. Then use the compost, leaving the worms in their tower to do their job. :)

    Interesting - and a corner of my basement laundry room might be perfect for them. I wonder if I could hide them from my somewhat squeamish wife...


    We've been composting inside for over 3 yrs now. We just bought a rubbermade tub and drilled aeration holes in it. It works like a charm!!! It is one of the best thigns we ever did when we moved into this house. :D
