I've got worms... they're multiplying!

Yes, that's right!  I've got worms.  I entered into the world of vermicomposting this winter!  You can see that I have it set up right alongside of all of our recycling, which seems very appropriate.

We've been doing this for a couple of months now.  I really appreciate that I can compost pasta and bread products in limited amounts using the worms, as these are things I wouldn't put in my compost pile.  I'm also not as likely to bring stuff out to the compost in the cold Minnesota winter, so worm composting helps us keep food waste out of landfills and will hopefully give my garden a boost this summer.

  1. Aren't they cool? I think I have the same worm condo that you have. Vermicomposting is so easy and it is like they are making garden gold!
