So, a couple of months ago I made a worm bin. I wanted a source of organic fertilizer, and to reincarnate my veggie kitchen scraps. Tossing them in the trash seemed like such a waste. Making the worm bin was pretty darn easy. Keeping it thriving, was even easier than I expected. I currently feed my worms about once a week, and check the top layer of cardboard for moisture at each feeding- adding more water if the cardboard is a bit dry. The worm bin has become my inconspicuous little fertilizer factory.
During the past couple of weeks, I started noticing that all of the newspaper fluff that had once been clean worm bedding had transformed into dark brown worm poop- the fertilizer I had been wanting! It was time to give the worms a new newspaper home, and harvest my “crop.”
