Digging worms is one of the stranger ways I've ever spent a Saturday evening.
But for the sake of my first-ever-compost-bin, dig we did.
In effort to recycle as much as possible and rid garbage of stench in the upcoming humid months, I've decided to try composting with worms. In one of the city's old blue recycling bins (recycling the recycle bin!) I've created a mini maintainable ecosystem.
In layers, it's: leaves, shredded newspaper, worms, soil and food scraps. It really is that simple. DIY with Martha.
*From the Latin word vermi meaning worm. Vermicompost is a matter rich in nutrients.
