Eeewy Gooey

…was a worm. A mighty worm was he. He sat upon the railroad tracks. The train he did not see. Eeewy gooey.
We finally got our worm compost going yesterday! I picked up two containers of worms at the gas station yesterday. The worms were cheap, the gas was not.
I took a small plastic bin with a lid and drilled holes around the outside. Then I added paper from our shredder and the worms. Lastly, I gave them a good spritzing with some water to get them going. From what I have read, in about a week or so, we will be ready to add kitchen scraps (plants only, of course)!
My garden is in dire need of some compost, so I may not wait until I have enough from this bin. However, I think this will suit our needs really well. We can keep it in the garage so animals can’t get into it like they would a regular compost. Plus, it is really fun for Abi (and me) to watch them.
Abi thought the worms were pretty fascinating. I’ll let you all know how this works!

  1. Awesome you got your composter going, we started ours a month ago, it is looking good, we just have to be careful of it getting too hot and going rancid. I was replanting my front flower bed and I pulled out the herb pots I had put in…the three pots were 90% worm poo with gigantic 6″ earth worms…it was beautiful:)
