worm superhero

our mission: to save those worms in our worm farm.
our job: to split the rapidly declining farm into 2 bins and add as much newspaper as we could to get some airflow.
our heroes: mama, felix and oscar ( in his highchair)

we started a worm farm in early January in hopes of creating some worm castings for starting our seeds at the end of the month. It's one of those "great ideas" one has in the middle of winter for a project, and it's been great. But like a skeleton in your closet, this one can go bad FAST and smell to high heaven. BUT we saved it ! I borrowed an old worm bin from some friends and split the farm in 2. One we'll let go for another month in hopes we can use the castings and the second we can keep adding too. Happy March

Disaster averted.

Oh, I wanted to try one of these last year but lost my nerve. I will live through you vicariously. :)

I was just feeling guilty today for not adding to our (outdoor) compost all winter. lazy, lazy.
