Welcome to the Wiggler Ranch! The DH recently began four vermiculture worm bins in our garage.
We feed the worms about once a week (or less, depending on how active they are). These are some well-fed worms! In this meal: Spanish radish, chard stalks, squash peel and spent tea leaves. Food artistry by the DH. ;-)
Plus a healthy dose of radish tops and other greens.
Feeding is simple...open the worm bin and nudge down any worm trying to escape. Dig a hole, and dump in the food. Cover with soil. Done!
There is no negative smell associated with the worm bins, just the nice smell of fresh earth. The worms aren't quite yet consuming all of our compostables, so the rest go to the garden in a direct-compost method. The DH digs deep holes into garden pathways, and adds the compost there. The worms gobble it up quickly.
Do you compost? If so, tell me your tips!
