I want worms to eat my garbage. Ok, they already do, out back, in the compost bins. I want them in the house. Worms eat my garbage is the title of a book by Mary Appelhof and it details how to set up a worm composting system. The idea is to build a simple container, line with some sort of bedding, such as newspapers and then start to add kitchen scraps. I've been talking about setting this up for a couple of years and now is the time to do it. My friends think it's a crazy idea especially when I start to talk about introducing worms to my work's staff lounge. What is it about worms (in this case, small red wriggler worms) that make people go "eew"?
A worm bin can be made for pennies, not including the cost of worms, but this system is pretty swank
I need an enthusiastic partner to help me with this worm endeavor as my honey, S, thinks I've gone off the deep end.
