“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.


The worms have arrived!!!


They came in two recycled margarine containers


My son Cameron was my photographer.  A little blurry, but here are the worms (red wigglers).

Cameron cut up the orange and apple to help the worms along.


We added used coffee grounds, the bedding and finally the worms.

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


This is the worm bin I have now
