We have worms

May 3rd, 2007 at 12:13 pm

We have a bin in the back yard..they are supposed to eat waste and such...

I was on my way to the store to buy a bin and then call some contacts to get worms, when my contact said she had a bin and the worms and all ready for me, just swing on by and get it.

very cool since my husband did not want to spend the money on worms.

I still have to call my wonderful friend and ask her what on earth I am supposed to do with them now that I have them.....

    You definitely need to visit this Vermicomposting forum at The most important thing is not to get the contents too wet, but if you are doing this outside in a bottomless bin of some sort, that should be no problem. You can also do it inside. "Worms Eat My Garbage" is a good book. There is another, too, whose name I can't recall, but it came out about 3 years ago and should be in the catalog of a good public library.

    (When I woke up this morning I looked across the room at the shelf where the Singapore Math books are, and recalled my delinquency in getting back to you about them. I have my own blog entry to make and them I PROMISE I'll "e" you with details on the books.)

    My mom composted with worms for years and years. She used to keep them in a bin under her bed...they ate vegetable scraps and newspaper.

    She had a beautiful garden, too, from all that mulch!

    I used to keep my worms in a plastic storage bin in my basement. They seemed to like it ok, cus it was shady and cool down there, but i could never get over the feeling of being creeped out by the thought of hundreds of worms crawling around down there and i was afraid someday they'd escape, come up the stairs and GET ME!

    I'm jealous. I've always wanted a worm bin, but never got around to building one. Tons of info on the net about worm bins, what to feed them, how & when to pull out the composted dirt (actually worm castings)......sometimes called Black Gold by gardeners.
    Price this stuff in a garden center & you'll be more than grateful you have your own source!

    Contrary, It is a plastic rubbermaid bucket with holes and stuff in it...I don't think it would take much time for a real gardener!

    Fern that is halarious! and I so am not putting one in my house....not that worms would want anywhere near me...but..squishing worms underfoot...ewwwww!

    Robex, I have a brown thumb, so nothing pretty is comming of this, but..well I have hopes I guess...

    Joan, I read a lot of that forum, thanks, I think I need to do something about how wet they are...they are outside..and it rained...not good I guess.

    Nana, you need to read up on worm composting..they eat garbage! apparently there is a book called worms eat my garbage you can find at the library Smile (I am headed there in a couple days to find it)

    i think that would be a great Father's Day present for my DH. I may look into getting him one.

    Personally I am glad that I am not getting worms for Father's Day!! To each his own.
