My File Cabinet Worms

They are happy, healthy. I had a cleaning lady in this week and challenged her to find the worms in our house.  When she couldn't figure it out, I narrowed the her search to rooms, then to the specific room.  She couldn't find them.  The cabinet looks so natural. Nothing tell-tale to give a clue.They are eating  about 2lbs a week.  No smell, liquid safely dripping into lower cabinet.Will be moving the file cabinet into my store next month.See More

Worms in the Store 2

My plastic file cabinet/worm bin seems to be working well.  The experiment is acutally in my guest room right now.  I had guests in over the weekend and it was only at the end of their stay that I mentioned that there were was vermicomposting going on somewhere in their room.  I challenged them to find the worms.  They couldn't and were shocked when I opened the file drawer, peeled back the shredded paper only to see my beautiful red wigglers wiggling away.  No smell, moisture good, garbage…See More

"Beth, please update us about your friend. Has she gotten on the vermicomposting bandwagon or is it still too icky. I think it is a thoughtful gift but, I am a worm person."

A Birthday Gift that Keeps on Giving

Today is my friend's birthday.  I tried to think of something wonderful to get her.  Something that wouldn't be forgotten among the trinkets, books, and cards.  Something that told her how much I admired and respected her.....There was only one real choice.   Worms.My friend is an avid composter.  Dedicated to healing the earth.  Dedicated to her home and family.  She is not a vermicomposter.  Its been a quandry for her during the winter, "what to do with garbage during the winter?".  No matter…See More

"What a great ideal.  If  people see the worms in action they will be more likely to give it a try them selfs. "

Worms in My Store

I am experimenting.  I want to find an "attractive" way to keep worms at my desk in the office section of my store, I won't need the larger bins that I use at home.  I could just use a small container to collect lunch trash and carryit back home at he end of the day but... my store is a "green" store.  We sell composters.  We give composting workshops.  Wouldn't it be great to have a method of vermicomposting to use that's enticing for the novice right there.So,   I found a black plastic three…See More

"so, are SteamyB and Sharon Hollars talking about a different kind of worm tube/tower? Sharon, yours sounds like some sort of in-ground fat plastic tube? But I was picturing those fancy things they sell in the Burpee catalog with all the drawers."

"Hmm, I've not had any noticeable odor with my worm towers at all, but I use a smaller tube than recommended on most sites and I only add relatively small amounts of "greens" at a time.  I never fill the tubes more than half way…"

Will be moving the file cabinet into my store next month.
