Vermicomposting


A reader found an old post about my composting worms, in which I had promised to post pictures. Being the slacker that I am, I never did get around to taking pictures of the wormies. For those of you who don't know about vermicomposting, I will refer you to my previous posts.

Our colony of worms, which we got from a nice man on freecycle, has been thriving for about 6 months now. We usually keep our worms outside, but in consistently sub-freezing temps we brought them inside. The worm compost doesn't smell bad at all, but we do have a few extra unwelcome insects in the house now. Nothing major, but it's awfully hard to keep small flies and the like out of your worm bin entirely. If anyone has the secret to keeping a more pristine worm bin, please share.
