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.

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.
