so help with my worms please

I'm a newbe on worms, I had a kind soul who gave me a compost bin and a hand full of worms.

I have been following the advise on this page and giving all the scraps of uncooked vegetables and fruit and the egg shells.

I try to turn the stuff in the bin as much I can and I feed them a good quantity every sunday. (I'm a chef so have access to a good bit of scrapps and egg shells)

The First Taber Gardens

My first experience with a garden was in my Granny's front yard. I have memories of this magical little space under a canopy of low trees. There were pathways between raised beds full of flowers. I must have been about 3 or 4 years old.  My memories of this garden remind me of things I've seen in a magazine. It was absolutely magnificent.

More recently in the past couple of years, I've been experimenting with growing things. I had the brilliant idea to grow…
