Yesterday I started a worm farm. Yes, worms! they are really productive little critters. I set up the bins by drilling holes in one of them all the way around the top in three rows and then a bunch of holes in the bottom. I had to adjust a little bit because I realized that the holes on the bottom can't be so big that the worms escape through there. I probably have to tape a few of them. I find out when I check on them today. So, anyway I set the bin with the holes over the bin with no holes. my bottom container has a lip on the side that allows the top bin to rest on in without sliding all the way in... perfect! That bottom bin is for the water (tea) to collect. I filled the top bin with some compost and kitchen scraps and added a bit of water. Worms like it moist. Off we went to the bait shop. I wanted red worms, but they had only nightcrawlers left. So we'll see how they do and that decides wether I am going to town to a different place to try for red worms again.

    the castings go in the garden soil, good for the plants, and the tea collected is used for watering the plants, the tea needs to be diluted, but it is also beneficial for the plants.
