“The worms are here! The worms are here!”

I am so excited to announce one of my many spring projects is complete. 

 The worm composter is up and running.

What I am Doing

So, I would imaging some of you are saying “What do you do”. Well, last year I gave the whole worm bin a shot. I made my own bin out of a Rubbermaid container. I was doing good for a while and then I got fruit flies. I couldn’t seem to get rid of them so I put those worms in the compost pile and that was the end of the worm bin. I guess you could say that I have decided to give it another shot. This time I purchased a worm composter from Craigslist. Not only did I get a deal, but I was able to recycle someone else’s “trash”. Now I have ordered more worms from Dan the Worm Man. You can also go to findworms.com .  Dan the Worm Man is the best price that I have found.  So, now I am awaiting the arrival of my 1 lb. of Red Wigglers.  I’ll keep you posted
