Blessings friends!

Been a while since I last posted here. Have really missed you guys. Had a huge change in my lifestyle, as I got a job in early Feb. Goin from not workin (out of my yard) for over 2 years to workin full-time is quite a time management challenge. The awesome part of this is the job is at a national small box hardware chain! My local store owner gives us everything they carry at cost (and shipping is free)! Now I can afford ALL the stuff I have been needing to make my…

Hi Jay,
Glad to hear you've been bitten by the vermibug once again... Raising worms can be as simple or as complex as you choose to make it. High- tech, low-tech, it doesn't matter. It's the whole process that is most enjoyable and, the end result is pure bliss for anyone who loves to grow things.

Glad to see you are re-purposing recycle bins. Waste not, want not!

 The hardest part for new wormheads is to learn NOT to bug your squirm on a daily basis.

 It took me a year and a half to learn to leave the little buggers alone & let them do the schtuff they do best.
