Worm Inns for sale

I have 3 Worm Inns I want to sell, but I don't want to have to ship them anywhere.  I'm in Des Moines, Iowa.  Is this a good place to do that, or would you recommend another site?Thanks!Continue

Welcome Deb, 

I am new to this worm community as well, and have hardly begun to learn all that there is to learn. Have fun!

Be happy to share some "bed run" (i.e., all ages) Euros with you. But not in DM again until this Saturday. Perhaps Sunday or next week? Meanwhile, prep a bin--get yourself a Rubbermaid tub and start saving your kitchen scraps (except pineapple) and pet hair. (I have a huge post on what worms will eat, somewhere on here, probably under my Profile.) If you don't have any leaves left over from fall, you can start with some of mine; heaven knows, I have plenty!

More Sunday; I'm at 277-4201 here.

Oh, so, um.... Bedding is a general habitat for the worms, like leaves, peat moss, shredded damp paper, and/or soaked and torn up cardboard. Food is kitchen scraps, horse or chicken poo, and... the bedding!  And my compilation of everyone's ideas of what red worms should and shouldn't/won't eat is under my BLOG listings. Believe me, it was a group effort with much kindly editing. Possibly see you Sunday.
