worm farming

I've had a worm farm for several years and it never ceases to amaze me. No matter how many scraps I put in on Saturday, the following Saturday, they are gone! It is great for people who can not have a compost heap.

Worms don't like too much moisture so make sure your farm has a spout for drainage. I use a takeaway container to collect excess water and use it (dilluted) in the watering can. It makes great fertilizer!

I am currently doing the research before adding one to our household. Do you throw meat etc iin, or do you keep it to just vegetable matter?

Any more info folks I would greatly appreciate it!

Add shredded paper to compost. It aids water retention and saves on material being returned to landfill.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
