Red Worm Composting Part Two
This really is anon going project. I hope to make a better more modern home when it gets closer to Fall and the weather cools.
This is not a beauty contest it is a home for wayward worms. I used horse manure layered with cardboard egg containers and shredded paper. Other layers were from my kitchen scrapes layer by layer I got the home ready.
Once I had enough material layered in it I made sure to soak it for a few weeks so the layers would kind of meld together for the worms to find there way into. And moisture is key to keeping the worms happy and alive.
Once I was done and the Red Worms arrived from their old home. I got them all settled and covered them. The wood is really light and did not compress the soil at all. I kept it covered so the Raccoons did not find it and think it was a supper gift.
Here is a link to Tony and Susan's bin it is beautiful and in the desert no less.
