The Worms Crawl In...The Worms Crawl Out...
I have spent the last week doing a lot of pesky little items to get things ready so we can hit the ground running when the weather finally breaks. I did some baking which added to the eggshell stash. I started herb seeds on Saturday and shared my trip to the Habitat For Humanity Re-Store with everyone a few days ago.
I also picked up the necessary items to create a worm composter. So... yesterday was the day to put that project together. I had planned to wait until we were a little closer to Spring, but I have an issue with the amount of food that we waste in our house. No matter how hard we try, we still have some food trash each week. We don't have a dog,a cat, or a chicken to eat the scraps, so they go into the trash. I am really hoping that the worms don't smell atrocious in the house as they do their work. (Otherwise, I'll have a lot of explainin' to do to The MartianMan until they can go outside!) I will also have to place an order for the worms. Hopefully, I will receive them by next week. I found the directions for building the composter here:
