Do you compost the shiny pages of junk mail? Magazines? Textbooks with pictures? I have been. I keep them in a separate worm box, and just use those castings on the lawn and flowers, but I always…Continue

Brent Spiner wanted to be a worm farmer

I wish I knew how to edit videos. But the worm farm part is in the middle.  From the old TV show "Night Court".

Really Big Worm and BEES!

Sunday we were planting potatoes in wire bins. I was digging in my compost to put in the bins to plant the 'taters, and seeing lots and lots of nice healthy worms. 

(Have you noticed when you dig around where composting worms are working that you get that wormbox smell?  My husband says I'm nuts, but I can tell there are red wigglers being disturbed when I smell it.…

Thanks for the welcome, I have been looking at a worm incubator. They are not cheap, I found a 27 cubic foot chest freezer on Craig's list for $ 75. If I install a thermostat and some heater tape for heating the soil in the winter months will this work?

Thanks for the welcome Antonia. I love the pictures of your back yard garden! We are converting a portion of our front yard into garden, so I like to look to see what others have done.

In response to you not throwing away any food, paper, or cardboard that is great.... I just read an article recently about its better to recycle paper and things like the newspaper than to use it in a worm bin. I usually shred my junk mail and use that in the worm bin and put the sunday journal in the recycle bin though... best wishes
