I have worms

No, not the itchy bum kind. Not the metres long kind growing in my belly so that I can eat the world without the increasing waistline.

I’ve got Tiger worms and Blue worms. They are composting worms.

I’m going to tend these worms to in return for their “liquid gold” poo juice (or some call it worm wee).

From the Wormsrus Worm Bin ad:

  • Great starter worm bin complete with worms , bedding and instructions.
  • Collector base with tap for worm tea.
  • 2 food trays.
  • Bedding.
  • 250gms compost worms including Tiger worms and Blue Worms.
  • Easy set up. Great price.
  • Full after sales service for life with the worm experts , 15 years in the industry.

I received the package on Thursday, but didn’t have time to set it up. I hoped that the worms would be ok in their box for another day. Wouldn’t it be awful if I killed our new friends before they even got here?

Well, after a Friday afternoon beer, I set this the bin up and I must say, it wasn’t difficult at all. Of course, I had a furry assistant to help me. Tofu mostly had a supervisior role, but he did an excellent job.

Tofu checks the worm box before we begin.

A bag of worms.

A shady, dry spot under the deck. Bedding goes in.

Yum yum. Delicious worm bedding.

Some of the wrigglers.

Inspection.

Jolly good job.

  1. Ok, I know this post is old… but you have a worm farm! This is something Mr. H. wants (and we cannot have now, we only have a small patio and a few pot plants that fit) but one day we will have a worm farm. However, I do need to get over my stupid fear of worms. Do you still have it?

    • Yes, we still have it! The worms are thriving even after all these years. They are very low maintenance. You can feed them every day or once every 3 weeks, they don’t seem to mind. The farm doesn’t take up much space. About the size of a chair. It’s a great alternative to a compost.

      I have propped it up on small pallets up about 1 foot off the ground so that I can put a watering can under it to collect the “worm tea”. It fills a watering can’s worth about once a month which is great for the garden. You never have to touch the worms, but it’s good to check on them when you feed them. Of course, you always make that solely Mr H’s job.

  2. Love your post! We bought a worm farm last year at the Go Green Expo (which is actually on this weekend)… so far it has been really great and an awesome way to compost!

    • My works are still going strong…4 years on! They are pretty tough, they can easily survive 3 weeks of neglect, though in the summer they can’t eat all the extra food we seem to accumulate so some goes in the bin. They do have some pet spiders and slugs that I’m not too fond of, but I’ll allow it.

I love your comments! Your comments are like extra melted cheese on top.
