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.

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…
