Have an abundance of kitchen scraps? Here’s how you can turn them into the best, most nutrient compost available using the power of a worm bin.
Is your compost pile buried under a foot of snow? Do you dread putting on your snowshoes and trudging out to the pile to dispose of your kitchen scraps? Yeah, me too. That’s why I’m planning to start composting inside, with worms. Yes, worms in the house (shhh, don’t tell my husband).
Keeping a worm bin in your house is simple. It will provide ‘black gold’ for your garden in the form of worm castings. Some minor issues may occur, but they are easily dealt with; like mites, which you can control with these easy steps.
I outsource my composting work as much as possible. Red Wiggler worms (Eisenia fetida) in an easy DIY bin chomp through your kitchen scraps and give you some of the best compost possible. Win-win-win. Read to learn to build a Vermicomposting Bin for yourself.
